    Not sure why I bring this stuff up, we all know that most people proved they don't care as the liberal will tell us. Not sure when they will care, oh right, when it directly effects them. Don't care about Benghazi, don't care about people being put out of work, don't care about nothing.

    Orlando Health layoffs: Orlando Health eliminates 400 jobs through layoffs and attrition - OrlandoSentinel.com

    In the largest staff reduction in its nearly 100-year history, Orlando Health is cutting up to 400 jobs starting immediately, hospital system officials announced Monday.

    The move is part of a broader effort to position the hospital system for the health-care overhaul, CEO Sherrie Sitarik said.

    The elimination of jobs will occur in two phases and represents a 2 percent to 3 percent reduction in the system's 16,000-person work force, said Orlando Health spokeswoman Kena Lewis. The cuts affect all departments and all eight of the system's hospitals, including Orlando Regional Medical Center and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, two of the system's better-known facilities.

    Gee......that sounds awful.

    It must be terribly hard for a person in the medical field to land a job. Just awful.

    Yup. OH has always done an excellent job preparing iitself for change. In the 30 years I've been there they have survived the competition from Florida Hospital which is an Adventist Hospital and thus has mega bucks supporting it, the competition from Columbia Hospital system a few years back, and dealing with DRGs, a wonderful government idea. Now, being brilliant businessmen and women, they will get us through the worst disaster ever to hit modern medicine; Obamacare.

    I used to work with Sherrie Sitarik when she was a nurse.

    Left wingers never are satisfied. They come into a thread about a hospital cutting jobs because of Obamatax and then post non-sequiturs. Apparently when the subject can't be defended the tactic is to change the subject, to anything else.

    Bingo. A simple summation of 1) the magnitude of the perversity in the existing system, 2) why reform of these payment and delivery structures was so necessary, and 3) why this is the most important and exciting period of change ever experienced by the American health care system.

    Forward!
