Passaic Hospital Cuts Staff Pending Sale Approval

Passaic’s St. Mary’s Hospital has terminated or reduced hours for 30 employees while it waits for state approval of a pending sale.

Hospital officials say the cuts are needed to help stabilize the budget and keep the 269-bed facility in Passaic open until its deal with Prime Healthcare Services is approved.

But critics say Prime wanted the staff reductions before it takes over the failing hospital.

Prime tells The Record newspaper that St. Mary’s management is solely responsible for its operation.

Hospital spokeswoman Vanessa Warner denied any influence from the buyer.
