I don't think management went out of its way at all. If management had been honest with employees up front a year ago and given them a choice to take cuts or not, no one would have been axed. Instead, there are still high-priced consultants running the hospital and an over-abundance of executives and managers which do not have to be there. The new benefits package really stinks too.

The enviroment of care is supposed to be a top priority but in reality it is not. when management becomes aware of a problem, there is in many cases no follow through.
