Mizell Memorial Hospital Begins Summer Cutbacks


By Catalina Trivino

Mizell Memorial Hospital CEO Jana Wyatt says the hospital sees anywhere from 10 to 20 percent fewer patients during the summer months.

Employees can expect about 10 percent less in their paychecks.

Wyatt says if more patients come in or once flu season comes back, hours and salary will go back to normal.

Wyatt says the hospital will still operate 24-hours a day and seven days a week, and patients will not see a difference in care.


An Opp hospital is temporarily cutting employee's hours during the spring and summer months.
