Hospital makes third round of cuts for the year

Deaconess Hospital in Cincinnati will cut 40 jobs when it eliminates its older adult mental health program in an attempt to further scale back operations. The nonprofit hospital has been losing money for several years, according to Business Courier of Cincinnati. In January the 273-bed hospital closed its ER, which led to 100 job cuts. In August, it closed its surgery department and related services, eliminating 60 positions. The hospital has tried to find a partner or buyer, but has had no luck so far. Article
