Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Natchez (Miss.) Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter has an­nounced a 10% salary re­duc­tion for all em­ploy­ees and man­agers while some up­per-and mid­dle man­age­ment-level work­ers will see a cut of 20%.

The hos­pi­tal says it is try­ing to shore up its fi­nances to re­main in busi­ness un­til it is turned over to new own­er­ship.

Com­mu­nity Health Sys­tems, based in Brent­wood, Tenn., is ex­pected to fi­nal­ize the pur­chase of the hos­pi­tal by Sept. 30.

Natchez Re­gional CEO Donny Rent­fro says em­ploy­ees mak­ing less than $9 an hour will not be af­fected and no em­ployee will drop below $9 an hour in the re­duc­tion.

The med­i­cal cen­ter opened in 1960 as Jef­fer­son Davis Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal.
