SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) -
Almost 90 St. Joseph's employees chose to take a buyout offer, according to a hospital spokesperson.
The hospital has reviewed applications for employees who chose the voluntary offer and has notified each applicant of their status.
St. Joe's president and CEO, Leslie Paul Luke said nearly 30 percent of the 300 eligible employees accepted the offer, and St. Joe's has started working with them on departure timetables.
Here's an official statement from the hospital's president/CEO:
"We are pleased to report that the response from eligible and non-eligible employees alike was positive, and we are quite optimistic about our future. It is important to note that St. Joseph's Health is growing in some areas of our business and realigning resources in others. In fact, we employ more people today than we did in 2016, and like any reasonable organization we must continually assess how to best deploy those resources. We have over 150 open positions currently, and we continue to hold recruitment events to help us fill vacancies in strategic focus areas like Home Care and Outpatient Services. Ultimately, this effort was a success, and it will help us achieve the flexibility we need in order to continue our transformation from a pay-for-service model to one focused on population health, efficiency and outcomes."
