Eight people have been laid off at Central Vermont Medical Center and nine vacant jobs won’t be filled as the hospital copes with a $5 million deficit, officials said.

The eight, who worked in management positions, were notified Monday their jobs had been eliminated because of budgetary reasons, not poor performance, according to hospital President Judy Tarr.

Other cost-cutting measures have been taken, including a wage freeze, termination of a valet parking service and reductions in catering services and landscaping expenditures.

Tarr says it’s the hospital’s job to be fiscally responsible and try to provide the community with affordable health care.
