Columbus-based Mount Carmel Health will cut 300 jobs and several outpatient services to cope with reduced revenue. Among the service casualties are the system’s smoking cessation program including its help-line, its senior outpatient lung rehabilitation and outpatient nutrition counseling services.
The system will no longer provide operational audits and business planning for area physicians. Mount Carmel is a subsidiary of the Catholic Church-owned Trinity Health. It operates four hospitals in the Columbus area.
Note: Employers that use wellness programs to reduce medical costs may have fewer options to operate program components such as smoking cessation and dietary counseling as economic conditions worsen. Employers should develop contingency plans to make sure services are available. Many health benefit plans predicate discounts on employers offering wellness programs. These discounts may be in jeopardy if the employer cannot locate the component services.
