HAGERSTOWN — Washington County Health System is cutting 36 jobs, or about 1 percent of its work force, President and CEO James P. Hamill said Wednesday.

He said the volume of patients throughout the system has dropped 5 to 10 percent.

The decline over the last four or five months is “a reflection of the economy,” which hospitals elsewhere are experiencing, too, Hamill said.

The cuts are to support staff positions across the health system, he said.

Washington County Health System is the parent organization of Washington County Hospital. It also includes Antietam Health Services, Robinwood Medical Center, Home Care Pharmacy and other practices and services.
