LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Baptist Health says it is temporarily furloughing some of its employees.

Those impacted are full and part-time employees in jobs that do not support caregivers, or are not critical to clinical operations related to COVID-19.

Some other staff members have also been temporarily re-assigned.

Furloughs are happening at all eight hospital systems, and those furloughed will be eligible for unemployment, and will continue to receive medical benefits.
