Fairmont Regional Medical Center lays off 25 employees, but primary care positions remain intact

FAIRMONT — Due to a “reorganization of administrative functions,” Fairmont Regional Medical Center laid off 25 employees Wednesday.

The layoffs were almost exclusive to administrative jobs at the hospital, with primary care positions remaining intact, according to Michael Sarrao, vice president of Fairmont Regional Medical Center and Alecto Healthcare Services, the hospital’s parent company.

“Fairmont is always looking at ways to be more efficient as we have declining reimbursements from all payers,” Sarrao said. “We’re always looking to fortify Fairmont for the long term. As part of that, we reorganized some administrative functions that resulted in the elimination of 25 positions, which then resulted in layoffs for 25 different individuals.”
