Novant Health eliminating nearly 300 jobs

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Novant Health is laying off nearly 300 workers.

The Winston-Salem company said Tuesday it will eliminate 289 management and staff positions. It is eliminating 150 positions in the Winston-Salem area, most at Forsyth Medical Center.

The company plans to eliminate about 100 positions in the Charlotte area, which includes four Presbyterian hospitals in Charlotte, Matthews and Huntersville.

The company says only about a fifth of the layoffs will affect employees who deliver patient care.

Novant has 25,000 jobs in a system that owns 13 hospitals in three states, including Brunswick Novant Medical Center in Bolivia. No word on if any of the layoffs will be at that hospital.

Spokesman Jim Tobalski says the company will try to find jobs for affected employees among the jobs for which Novant is recruiting.

The company blames the reductions on the recession and changes in health care.

STORMTRACK 3: Rain is ending, but it remains gusty as Beryl pulls away.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Beryl is beginning to exit the area and push offshore. The last of the rain is moving through Pender and New Hanover Counties and will be offshore by 4pm. The storm has already dropped anywhere from 2-4" of rain across the area. While the system was still classified a tropical depression at the 11am advisory, it will likely become a non-tropical system this afternoon. 

There have been scattered reports of trees and power lines down throughout the area. This is largely due to the soaking rains followed by gusty winds in excess of 40 mph. 

Here’s a look at your StormTrack 3 forecast:

  • This Afternoon: Rain pushing offshore. Winds remain gusty. Downed trees are possible. Temps in the mid/upper 70’s. 
  • Tonight: Clearing skies. Lows in the mid 60’s. West winds at 5-10 mph. 

Stay tuned to WWAY for updates, and head to Hurricanes 101.
