Piedmont Healthcare to cut 464 jobs

Piedmont Healthcare to cut 464 jobs

ATLANTA -- Piedmont Healthcare is cutting 5 percent of its workforce after a systemwide review of company costs. 

That's equivalent to 464 positions, about a third of which were already vacant, according to Piedmont spokesman Jim Taylor.

"Changes like these are extremely difficult and not without emotion since they impact friends and co-workers,"Piedmont Healthcare President and CEO R. Timothy Stack said in a statement. "In all circumstances, our decisions are based on our responsibility to provide safe, quality care at a competitive price and to be good stewards of our resources as a community-based, not-for-profit healthcare provider."

The job cuts are just a fraction of $68 million in cost-saving measures eyed by the healthcare system.
