Tower Health, the Reading-based hospital system which owns Chestnut Hill Hospital and Tower Health Urgent Care locally, has announced the layoffs of 55 Unit Secretaries between Chestnut Hill and Pottstown Hospitals which will take place on November 10. These Unit Secretaries will be replaced by lower waged Unit Support Coordinator positions which pay about $3 less per hour. Unit Secretaries are encouraged to apply for any open positions at the Hospital.
Tower Health has been on an acquisition spree with the purchase of Chestnut Hill, Brandywine, Pottstown, Phoenixville and Jennersville hospitals and Premier Urgent Care. Tower Health also recently won the bid to purchase St. Christopher's Children Hospital.
