Job Cuts at Huey P. Long

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA/PINEVILLE, La—Huey P. Long is about to have its staff cut, and its facility consolidated, following state budget cuts which slashed funding.

Back in June, federal legislation cut state and federal money available for health services in Louisiana.

Due to these cuts, Huey P. Long Medical Center will consolidate many of its services.

The in-patient pediatrics service will be cut by mid-September. The out-patient service will remain.

Thirty-three positions will also be lost because of the consolidation of the Pineville and Alexandria medical centers.

The medical center at England Airpark will close by the end of October in preparation for the renovations at the facility.
