(STURGIS) – Several questions are being asked by Sturgis Hospital employees since the announcement of departments closing and workers losing their jobs.
Now, the employees are asking the City of Sturgis for help in getting those answers.
During their meeting Wednesday, the City Commission received a brief history of how Sturgis Hospital went from a city owned facility to a not for profit, private enterprise. Following that, hospital employees were given time to address the Commissioners.
Charlie Persinger, an Emergency Room nurse at Sturgis Hospital, says he like all of the hospital employees want to know why these cuts are being made. LINKC.
