Tifton Hospital To Cut 40 Positions

Executives at Tift Regional Medical Center say they are eliminating about 40 positions to cut costs.

The Tifton Gazette reports that the staff cuts were announced Monday, and the positions being eliminated are scattered throughout the hospital.

Stacey Beckham, the hospital's assistant director of outreach and development, says no bedside nurses are included in the cuts.

Hospital President and CEO William Richardson said in a statement that the facility is financially sound, but must prepare for pending changes in federal health care reform.
