Carolinas Hospital System is streamlining services at its medical facilities in Florence and Marion in order to reduce administrative cost as they re-organize, according to a news release.

The release said most employees impacted were afforded the opportunity to move into other positions, but five employees lost their jobs as a part of this transition.

The hospital sent the following statement on the matter:

"The two campuses of Carolinas Hospital System continually look for ways we can work more closely together to provide high quality care for our region and the patients who are counting on us for care. We are focused on the services we do best, increasing our efficiency and minimizing our ongoing costs of operation in order to recruit more primary care and specialist physicians to our region. As a system, we are in the process of recruiting physicians to our region and supporting their ongoing success. And we can create more patient access to services, bringing new service lines close to home. Carolinas will continue to invest in our region, as plans are being finalized for a new free standing emergency department in West Florence and most recently, the renovation of The Women’s Center to enhance the care of expectant mothers, and their babies.

Work flow has been reorganized to minimize administrative costs, with a number of people moving into other positions in the organization where resources are needed the most. One executive team has been established with one CEO and one CFO overseeing both hospitals. Vance Reynolds will serve as CEO of both hospitals and Spencer Twigg has been promoted to the administrator at Carolinas Hospital System – Marion. "
