Yes, up to 5% in the Houston area alone.
The HCA here in SAN ANTONIO, the main one on Floyd curl-has left go of 31 of their employed workers. Their tactic is to bring you into a conference room and write you up
Lawsuits are pending. There’s harassment, bullying, and worse the patients are suffering. No staffing. Highly suggest not to take any family members to HCA especially main Methodist.
Nurses, clerks, NP, Cardiologists are all being laid off meanwhile the Vice Presidents and CEOs are not standing behind their staff or backing them up. Creates a horrible tensed environment where staff are working endless hours for minimum pay.
God always shines a light through darkness. I have faith in the Lord, say a prayer for these times because this will get worse.
I bet Anonymous from December 5th is having an Ah-Ha moment.
I worked for HCA for 12 years. I was let go because a male co-worker 15 years younger than me did not like the fact that I would not flirt with him and stroke his ego. He hated older women and was rude to everyone that he came in contact with. I got no severance and my supervisor back-balled me but somehow I ended up back there 15 weeks later as a contractor. I hung out for 8 months before I left. My new boss was always saying “I know what D$$ said about you”. It was crazy. At that point, all I was trying to do was support my family and keep my head down. So glad I got out of there.
HCA in Las Vegas is staying they will lay-off 10% of the workforce if the union here does not agree to no raises, no 401 K match, no shift differentials and no OT. Our local SEIU 1107 is fighting against it. But this is all news to me because I saw in the news HCA higher ups were taking pay cuts to not lay anyone off???
Layoffs expected in July for some Northern California affiliates is the current rumor
I’m getting really tired of HCA saying they laid off contractors. Two years ago they made almost all 1099 contractors switch to W2 positions (presumably to take advantage of new corporate tax cuts). They then laid off those W2 “contractors” with no severance and one week notice.
HCA is trying to have its cake and eat it too, they keep trying to call the people that they forced into W2 positions “contractors.” Those newly-minted W2’s, when they switched from 1099, didn’t sign contracts. HCA is bold-faced lying and no one in the press seems to want to dig deeper into how shady all of this is.
HCA should be ashamed that with no notice they not only laid off EMPLOYEES, they did so without offering any severance pay whatsoever (including for employees that stuck with them for many years, declining other work out of loyalty to the company), into a pandemic and empty job market, and then had the nerve to lie about it to the press.
We were told there is a hiring freeze, but I see many non-direct-patient-care roles posted. I bet we will have layoffs soon. 1) hiring freeze, 2) pay cuts for 2 months. 3) prediction: next, they will say, “We tried saving money with pay cuts and a hiring freeze, but now we have to do layoffs. Our hands are tied.” —that sort of thing. IMHO
As of 03/20/2020, Hospital Corporation of America has terminated all contractors effectively immediately. This has affected many people who are currently working on Corporate contracts and have been there for many years.
Managers are telling staff that it is strictly a financial decision and was made by the financial departments.
Unfortunately, this is not the entire truth. Some contractors are keeping their positions and other are not. They have not been willing to discuss how the decisions were made.
Apparently, the largest hospital corporation in America is laying off contractors so that they don’t have to divulge to the public that they are actually laying off people due to the COVID-19 virus.
Heard some big changes coming, all IT projects stopped and contractors may get fired.
I was let go recently after ten years because my job was given to someone from India. Talented US citizens are left jobless, where as there is an influx from India. Most of them lie about their skills.
Typically HCA management has a playbook. The manager will send the employee a meeting and invite for the employee to give an update in the manager’s office.
30 mins before the meeting it is changed to another conference room and then the employee is let go. Their belongings are sent to them, so there is no time to clear out their desk.
Advise is for employees to not get to comfortable by keeping too much stuff in their office unless you want someone else going through the items to ship them to you in a box.
North Texas IT is acting very strangely. It’s known that a change is coming and internal docs have been seen in upper management. Us lowly workers have no knowledge and just hear rumblings of things.
