About 40 percent of Drexel University physicians and clinical staff will lose their jobs as a result of the planned closure of Hahnemann University Hospital, Drexel president John Fry announced in an email to the university staff Thursday morning.
For weeks, clinical staff and employees at the university’s medical college have been wondering what the sudden closure would mean for their jobs. Fry said it left the university’s physicians’ practice, Drexel Medicine, at “a crisis point.”
