Officials will do so through cost saving measures, and have no plans for major job reductions at this time. UH boasts continued recruitment and hiring practices.

University Hospitals released the following statement on Friday.

University Hospitals continues to expand the Northeast Ohio health care system to best fit the needs of the community and to provide the highest quality care and most advanced services to our patients. Over the past two years we have positioned the system for growth while preparing the organization for health care reform and reduced Medicare reimbursements. UH aims to trim $100 million during the next two years through cost savings and revenue opportunities and has no plans for major job reductions. In fact, UH continues to recruit and hire caregivers and other key talent to build on our successes and provide the best patient experience, every time. This has been one of our health system’s biggest hiring years, with more than 3,200 positions filled at UH since January 2011.
