Erlanger hospital begins manager and director layoffs

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Erlanger Health System has notified employees that administrators will begin laying off managers and directors this week in a second phase of a labor management plan to cut costs.

In an inter-office memo to employees sent Wednesday, Erlanger officials said they would provide additional information to employees in coming days. The memo did not say how many positions will be affected.

Erlanger has lost $10.3 million in the last six months, due primarily to lower surgery numbers, officials have said.
