More Layoffs In Healthcare

The cost cutting continues at Horizon Health as we hear from the New Brunswick Nurses Union that 23 registered nurses have been laid off at both of the Regional Health Authorites with other R-N's getting their hours cut. 

16 of the nurses who got pink slips are with Horizon Health including a few in Saint John. 

These layoffs follow cuts to 120 registered nursing positions last year. 

In addition to the layoffs, more than 20 jobs that are vacant will remain unfilled.
