It has been announced that the recently formed Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health system will be eliminating hundreds of jobs.
According to MiBiz, the healthcare system has cut 400 jobs statewide to address the rising costs that have been severely impacting the healthcare sector this year.
According to BHSH, the layoffs will impact non-clinical and administrative positions. The decision was made in the midst of Beaumont Health’s significant midyear losses in southeast Michigan and Spectrum Health West Michigan’s lower earnings.
Mark Sanchez, a senior writer at MiBiz, examined recent data to determine whether hospital mergers actually result in cost savings.

“The question of whether healthcare mergers save costs is hotly debated nowadays. It does result in some optimization and lower costs, according to some research, most recently published by the American Hospital Association a few years ago, Sanchez said. However, numerous other studies have indicated that this does not always result in lower administrative expenses and, in some circumstances, may even result in higher prices.
Sanchez added that the problems in Michigan have affected the whole U.S. healthcare system.
