UI Hospitals and Clinics Budget Cuts

Posted:

Hard economic times are impacting everyone, including local hospitals.  University Hospitals and Clinics officials say they will cut 3-point-1 million dollars in costs every month.  They have to make up for about 25-million dollars by next June.  The savings would come from vacant positions, hourly worker cuts and non-labor costs.  The hospital says cash flow is down, expenses are up and the flood cost them millions.  But it's not all bad, the UI is planning a renovation and expansion to the hospital by 2013.
