(Las Vegas, NV) — There will soon be fewer employees at Sunrise Hospital.
A spokesman for the medical center on Maryland Parkway says 144 positions will be eliminated. Employees will be offered a voluntary severance package, before the hospital decides how many pink slips will go out.
Sunrise officials say fewer patients used the hospital last year, while a growing number are unable to pay their bills.
