What does this mean for employees? Will anyone lose their job?
You will not notice any change in your daily work or your relationship with the hospital or Company as a result of the financial restructuring. Employees will be paid their wages and benefits for the work they perform, and no layoffs are planned as a result of this action.
Will my compensation, health benefits or PTO be affected?
No. Employee salaries, benefits and PTO remain the same.
Are recent staff layoffs/furloughs related to this reorganization?
No. Like many other healthcare organizations around the country, our hospitals are evaluating and, in some cases, temporarily adjusting staffing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes are unrelated to the company’s financial reorganization.
How will patient care be affected? Will our hospitals continue to accept new patients?
Our medical staffs will not change, and our hospitals will continue caring for patients as they always have. Other than temporary changes that may be necessary as a result of addressing COVID-19, patients and families will continue to experience the same care.
Does this mean Quorum Health will not move forward with planned investments such as technology purchases or facility upgrades at its hospitals?
At this time, Quorum Health is fully focused on ensuring that its hospitals have the resources needed to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and, ultimately, resume normal operations once it subsides. However, as part of the reorganization, the company has secured new investment funding of $100 million to support our business during the restructuring process.
What happens next?
The operations of Quorum Health and its hospitals are unaffected and all facilities are open and available to provide patient care. In addition to occasional corporate updates, your local hospital management team will keep you updated.
I received a legal notice in the mail in connection with QHC’s restructuring. What does this mean for me?
These notices are being mailed to a wide range of stakeholders, including employees and some physicians. Please know that while these notices may be lengthy and complex, they are a customary part of the financial restructuring process and will not impact our relationship with you.
