Blackwell Hospital lays off 20 employees


On Monday, Blackwell Regional notified employees of a workforce reduction plan which displaced 20 members of their team in order to bring their operation level in line with the total number of patients served. 


CEO of Blackwell Regional Hospital said community hospitals are facing declining revenue, lower patient volumes and reduced payments from government programs causing the layoff.

Stillwater Medical will give hiring preference to released Blackwell Hospital employees.
