SSM Announces Employee Furloughs Of Five Percent Of Their Workforce Across Four State Health System

SSM Health is announcing furloughs for about 2,000 employees or 5 percent of their workforce across their 4 state health system.

According to an email from SSM sent out this morning additional employees will experience partial furlough through a reduction of hours.

The furloughs are expected to last 13 weeks as SSM is experiencing financial challenges while investing in supplies and tools needed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

SSM says executive compensation has been frozen and they are placing a hold on open positions that are non-critical and support functions have been reduced by 20% and discretionary expenses are frozen for the year.
