Adena Health System CEO Jeff Graham has stated that Adena will likely make an eventual decision to furlough nonessential employees to limit financial shortages due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Adena Health followed the guidance from the Center for Disease Control by canceling all elective surgeries and procedures, which comprises a big chunk of the hospitals income. As a result, the health system has experienced significant financial strain. Graham made the comments on a video on the hospital’s website.
Fayette County Memorial Hospital in Washington Court House has already announced 71 furloughs at their site.
