FAIRMONT, W.Va. — Twenty-five employees of the Fairmont Regional Medical Center learned Wednesday they were laid off from the facility.
The news came without warning. An official told WBOY-TV the positions were all administrative.
Fairmont Regional Medical Center is owned by Alecto Healthcare Services, the parent company of the Ohio Valley Medical Center in Wheeling and the East Ohio Regional Hospital in Martins Ferry, Ohio. Ohio Valley Medical Center shut down earlier this month.
Alecto purchased Fairmont General Hospital in June 2014; the name was changed to the Fairmont Regional Medical Center in September that year.
