BSA Health System announces furloughs

On Tuesday, BSA Health System announced it will the furlough some staff members.

“We have sought to avoid position eliminations by realigning services and making staffing changes, including reduction of hours and furloughing employees.

“We know this is a difficult time for workers and families alike. We are hopeful that these measures will be short-lived, allowing us to continue to serve our patients and communities while we work through this unprecedented crisis and into the future.

"We are grateful for the service of all staff members and we remain optimistic that over the next few months, we will return to normal hours for our employees,” Bob Williams, BSA President and CEO said.

BSA said that no positions have been eliminated at this time. The furloughs may extend up to 90 days, but employees may be called back sooner if needed.
