WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center has called back 34 furloughed employees.
They include nurses and staff for surgery as that business begins to recover.
A total of about 175 employees were furloughed in April.
The Ogdensburg hospital has received $6.8 million in federal stimulus funds, but that doesn’t come close to losses it has suffered because of pandemic.
Claxton-Hepburn also has secured a Medicare advance loan of $11 million.
Meanwhile, at St. Lawrence Health Systems, where a total of 400 workers were furloughed, 80 employees have been called back to work.
