One of the biggest non-teaching hospitals in the country is cutting 400 jobs by not renewing temporary contracts, the NRC says on Tuesday afternoon.
The Medische Spectrum Twente hospital says it is reducing its temporary staffing levels to cut costs and has also imposed a recruitment freeze for all but key medical staff.
The hospital, which has a current workforce of 3,600, has borrowed heavily to fund a new building and says it needs to make the cuts to ‘meet the requirements of the banking consortium’.
The hospital was placed under special health ministry supervision in 2013 because of poor safety standards.
