32 Positions Eliminated At Hospitals Across NB

32 nurses across the province losing their jobs.

On Friday, Horizon Health Network gave layoff notices to the full-time and part-time registered nurses working in the Charlotte County Hospital, Sussex Hospital, Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital, Oromocto Public Hospital, Upper River Valley Hospital, and the Moncton City Hospital.

The health authority says the layoffs are because of changes to their standardized models of care and staff skill mix on their 22 family medicine units.

President of the New Brunswick Nurses Union, Marilyn Quinn says, their goal is to ensure Horizon finds work for all those affected.
