Seems like every few months now Towers has rounds of layoffs. The organization should just file for bankruptcy at this point and do the inevitable. 1.5 billion in debt and the organization isn’t profitable year over year. You can’t just keep cutting... — read more
Be Very Careful - Human Resources
I know that a lot of people are talking about this throughout Tower Health. Our HR department took a major turn around a year ago and most people don’t think it’s for the best. We have a new Chief Human Resource Officer (I believe that is her... — read more
Who would of thought that things could get even crazier. Absolutely no one knows what is going on here. Employees getting secretly moved to new positions, employees being threatened to produce more, morale at an all time low, rumors of more layoffs... — read more
New Management - Big Changes
So we have some new leadership at Tower Health with a new COO and new CEO of Provider Enterprises. I was told from senior management last week that some major changes are coming. Providers will definitely need to be more productive, access will need... — read more
Another Round of Layoffs Coming
Tower Health Medical Group is under the microscope. I have heard there is going to be major realignments and some layoffs are expected. The Medical Group is bleeding money, no confidence in leadership, providers still leaving in droves, and numbers... — read more
Chestnut Hill Hospital sold
Doesn't seem any layoffs are planned for now, but you never know.
Is everybody still employed?
Brandywine folks, are all of you still employed by Tower Health or Penn Medicine, or are there those who are going to be jobless starting tomorrow? It's bad enough the second local hospital is closing, I'd hate it if it meant that some local folks... — read more
Some of these posts did not age well
But what do you expect with the incompetent management that's not capable of making sure they're selling the hospitals to somebody who can actually pay for them. If I wasn't part of this whole mess and somebody was telling me about it, I'd have... — read more
Can the new owner of Jennersville and Brandywine hospitals save those facilities?
https://www.inquirer.com/news/will-new-owners-jennersville-brandywine-hospitals-save-those-facilities-20211204.html Jennersville is known for its ER while Brandywine runs a key inpatient psychiatric service. But both are small and losing money. And... — read more
Jennersville is back from the dead
Those of you who were hoping for a stay, I'm happy for you and I wish you all the best in the future. Frankly, I think everybody would be much happier if they moved on to better things, but to each their own. I'll be leaving at the end of the year... — read more
The notice is out for 293 people. I knew Jennersville was closing but I kept hoping for a miracle. What can I say, I'm an id--t that way. We'll see what's going to happen with the rest of us. Maybe there'll be no more closings, but I can bet you... — read more
Brandywine Hospital still in danger
Despite cost-saving steps that included layoffs, executive pay cuts and a medical staff restructuring, Tower Health's overall expenses climbed slightly to $2.44 billion in fiscal 2021, a 6% increase from $2.3 billion spent the previous... — read more
Here we go
Jennersville is the first one to go and Brandywine seems to be close behind. They say everybody will be placed either with Tower or Penn Medicine, but I'll believe it when I see it. I hoped that the whole Penn deal would help keep us all open, but I... — read more
Bill Jennings Leaving
Another big blow to Tower Health. Their most competent leader is leaving. Now we have an interim CEO over Tower Health, a CEO leaving their biggest hospital, a mass exodus of physicians and nurses that can’t stand this organization. Sounds like a... — read more
It Keeps Getting Worse
More closures, consolidations and realignments. Tower Health is losing top talent every day. Tons of providers have already given their resignations. Health system has become a joke in southeastern, PA. I can’t believe more leadership has not been... — read more
I'll keep it short and simple. Tower Health likely is headed for bankruptcy. No one is going to pay us to take on 1.5 billion dollars in debt.
Is it likely that the Tower will be sold?
How much do you believe this could happen and do you think it is the only remaining option for this company to survive?
So layoffs happening all across the health system but not be reported in the news. This organization has become a laughing stock. I feel bad for the employees that have been here for the long haul and now being laid off without a second thought... — read more
Another bond downgrade and 1.3 Billion dollars in debt. Where does Tower Health go from here? No other healthcare system is going to buy the other hospitals without Reading Hospital included. UPMC looks like the clear favorite at this point. UPMC... — read more
Finally a good move
People at the top are overpaid as it is, this latest move to cut their pay is exactly the kind of thing that needs to happen if we're to move forward and out of the mess we're in. Yes, I know it's nowhere near enough but in my opinion, it's a move in... — read more
Who else is sick and tired of this wait?
If you are going to sell my hospital and lay me off than tell me already! Enough with this "we're still making our decision and considering all the factors" c-ap! Sell us, close us, but tell us what's going on! Yes, I'm mad. We stress enough as it is... — read more
Painful Layoffs at Tower Health (June 2020)
About 1,000 people lost jobs today. In addition, there was 1,000 furloughed people back in April. There is less patients and the overall drop in revenue is about 40 percent. No company can survive this and we were expecting a 20% cut (at least I... — read more
