LAS VEGAS (AP) – A Pennsylvania-based health services company has laid off 41 employees at one of its five Las Vegas-area hospitals.
A spokeswoman for Desert Springs Hospital said Wednesday the job cuts aren’t related to the announcement last week that parent company Universal Health Services will spend $3.1 billion to buy several Nevada psychiatric hospitals.
Desert Springs spokeswoman Michelle Swafford says the layoffs came from among managers, supervisors, clinical and support staff.
She says no direct patient-care nurses were affected.
UHS owns Summerlin, Valley, Centennial Hills, Spring Valley and Desert Springs hospitals in Clark County.
