EMMC Eliminates 76 Positions 

CEO Deborah Carey Johnson construction says the cutbacks are necessary to get the Bangor hospital &quot:back on track&quot: during a time of economic difficulties.

The hospital will eliminate 52 vacant positions and 24 positions that now are filled, and a planned $200 million update of the main campus may be put on hold.

But construction of the new CancerCare of Maine building in Brewer and a new parking garage on the hospital’s Bangor campus will continue.
