Covenant Medical Center is rolling with the changes mandated by the new healthcare reform, which is unfortunate news for several employees. 

The system announced layoffs of 49 employees Monday as part of a comprehensive plan to lower healthcare costs. Those impacted represent less than one percent of Covenant's entire regional workforce.

A spokeswoman said the hospital will attempt to find other positions for employees, and will extend assistance to those having trouble finding work, including outplacement services and severance packages for those who qualify.
