Mercy Hospital in Portland Offers Buyouts to 99 Workers

LEWISTON, Maine - Mercy hospital in Portland is offering early retirement to 99 employees. Spokesman Wayne Clark says the goal is to improve the hospital's financial position and reduce its workforce as it prepares to consolidate operations at its Fore River campus.

"That's our vision for a strong community hospital with a focus on primary care and preventive care," Clark says.

Clark says the shift to one campus will likely take two to three years. Mercy currently has more than 1,500 employees.
