BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern Medical Center is looking to cut millions of dollars from their budget, and with budget cuts comes layoffs.
However, hospital officials say there will not be as many layoffs as originally expected. KMC CEO Russell Judd said they are now only planning 36 layoffs instead of the 51 they originally projected.
Most of the cuts will be resignations and retirements, which are expected to start in mid-August with notices going out to employees at least 15 days prior.
The hospital hopes to save an estimated $2.5 million on the 2014-15 fiscal year, and nearly $3 million annually in the future.
