Can anyone tell me how many RNs lost their jobs when the two hospitals closed?

Thanks,

Ali

I believe I read somewhere that around 900 nurses total (between HMC-East and West) lost their jobs... Not 100% sure though... I just know that it makes it even more difficult for us new-grads -sigh- :-/

actually, to clarify, there were about 1000 employees in general who lost their jobs. i found this additional statement from insurance news:

[color=#333333]

"of the employees who will be laid off, one-third are nurses, according to the state

department of labor and industrial relations

[color=#333333]."

so it's safe to say around 300-400 nurses?
