The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) is no longer employing an in-house cleaning staff, resulting in 120 layoffs, according to an article on the Clarion Ledger website.
The employees will have an opportunity to apply for jobs with Crothall Healthcare Inc., the contractor providing housekeeping services to UMMC.
A UMMC official could not say whether Crothall will be opening 120 positions, but did say the pay and benefits for employees who transition will be at least as much as they received as UMMC employees.
Since 2015, Crothall has provided full-service housekeeping to the medical center's clinical areas, departments at its Jackson campus, UMMC Grenada and UMMC Holmes County.
