Trinity Mother Frances lays off approximately 80 employees

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Trinity Mother Frances Health System began an expense reduction effort Tuesday morning that includes the layoff of around 80 employees.

It is part of a reduction in expenses that hospital officials say were a necessary part of adapting to the business climate. A hospital official tells KLTV that the cuts span all parts of the system, from administration to infrastructure.

"Trinity Mother Frances has a distinguished 75 year history.  As we plan for our future service to the greater East Texas community, we will continue to place our emphasis on ensuring the highest standard of patient safety and providing the best and most compassionate patient care," said Lindsey Bradley, President & CEO. "As the health care sector changes, so must we change to address the needs of today and tomorrow."

"Our strategy is not just about cost-reduction; it is about positioning Trinity Mother Frances to grow in the ever changing health care market," Bradley said.  "I believe this is the best way for us to continue our commitment to serving the health care needs of people of East Texas."

"It is not lost on anyone inside Trinity Mother Frances that we are impacting the lives of our staff," said Darin Szilagyi, Trinity Mother Frances Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
