O'Bleness Hospital confirms 21 layoffs
(WOUB) - O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens is eliminating 21 full-time equivalent positions.

Spokeswoman Linda Weiss says the hospital has been expanding for the last three years, and that has caused expenses to outweigh revenues.

The positions being cut will include both union and salaried positions and will be eliminated through both layoffs and attrition.

Weiss says it's a competitive environment, and the hospital needed to expand to meet the medical needs of the people in the region.

Weiss says more information on the layoffs will be available later in the week.
