Report: Kansas Hospital Lays Off Employees Due to ObamaCare

Report: Kansas Hospital Lays Off Employees Due to ObamaCare

In a report that aired on Topeka, KS ABC affiliate KTKA on Tuesday, Newman Regional Hospital in Emporia, KS is scaling back some services as a means of countering the “negative financial impacts of the Affordable Care Act.”

According to KTKA, the cuts at the hospital are due to a projected $3.5 million loss this year. These cuts will result in 10 full-time employees and five part-time employees being laid off permanently and are expected to save the hospital $1 million annually. 

“It’s looking into the future,” Newman Regional CEO Bob Wright said to KTKA. “Knowing that we need to make a profit, having the advantage of critical access getting us most of the way there but having really to do our part as good stewards of our resources to make sure that we’re profitable.”
