Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital will begin furloughing some employees starting Monday.

Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital will furlough some employees and institute pay cuts starting Monday because of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Like all hospitals across the nation, we have followed CDC instructions and suspended elective surgeries in preparation for the certain surge of patients that will inevitably come during the COVID-19 pandemic,” hospital CEO Gary Stokes said. “At the same time, we’ve been stockpiling equipment and supplies in anticipation of the surge. That has resulted in extraordinary expenses piling up at exactly the same time that we’ve intentionally driven volumes down by more than 50%.”
