More than 200 employees at a pair of bankrupt hospitals in Hawaii are getting notices that they're losing their jobs on Christmas Eve.
The operators of the Hawaii Medical Center hospitals on Oahu plan to close the facilities, putting nearly 1,000 people out of work. More than 200 got notices Friday saying they'll be laid off effective Saturday.
The closures were announced after the hospitals' former owner and largest secured creditor objected to a potential sale.

They can call in for unemployment comp on Tuesday. It’s all done by phone now, as far as I know in all states.
So..Hawaii...how is that hope and change working out for you? Do you think your favorite son cares about you?
So, can they come up with a legit B/C?
There is a little more work for them, they can go be waitresses and lap dogs for their Messiah, after all, he vacations in Hawaii about 150 days per year.
My wife got laid off, along with 600 others, the week before thanks giving. She applied online and already received one unemployment check. We hope, now that the holidays are coming to an end, she will start getting offers.
Of course it’s not any employees at the two hospitals The Kenyan claims to have been born in. It’ll never be any of them. First one gets a lay off notice and he’ll be pocketing the key to the records room.
"No! Wait, no! You can't do that! That's one of the hospitals where I was born!"
Isn’t Hawaii one of those states which rolls out the welcome mat for illegal aliens? I wonder how this factored into sinking the hospitals financially?
Not to worry. President Obozo is in Hawaii. Stop by and say “hi” to him and I’m sure he’ll have the Treasury Department have a check in your mailbox in less than a week. Y’all go on by there now; ya hear?
Either a lot of patients transferred before the notices were issued or there is one hell of a high staff to patient ratio. What's normal?
Aaaahh! Paradise !!
Welcome home President Obummer. Where are our jobs.
What happened to the 60 day notice for layoffs?
For the money Obama and his lovely wife Sasquatch are spending on this current massive vacation ($4 million), you could hire 100 hospital workers at $40,000 for a year.
Don't the workers have the right to work? Shouldn't the employers be forced to pay regardless of their ability, according to the workers needs?
/socialist defective thinking.
Obama is in HI...maybe they should go to him for blessings and band aids.
Yeah And the First Illegal is Vacationing there now
Yeah...imagine that.....shocking isn't it...
I often wonder how that simple formula goes right over the head of most libtards and union goons....
