Crozer-Keystone Health System, the biggest health-care provider in Delaware County, said Thursday that it was cutting 250 positions, after losing $15.7 million since July 1.
"Changes in health care continue to have a negative effect on Crozer-Keystone and many other health-care providers in our region and throughout the country," Crozer said in a statement.
The layoffs at Crozer, which employed 6,800, will include doctors and a "significant number of managers," the statement said. All will receive severance and continued benefits.
Bill Cruice, executive director of the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses & Allied Professionals, a union representing workers at Crozer, said he expected enough registered nurses to accept voluntary layoffs to avoid involuntary layoffs.
