Just wanted to give an update of the status of the situation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. According to a story published in the Boston Globe, physicians are banding together to donate $350,000 to help fend off layoffs. A lot of organizations talk about banding together, but it seems like it’s more than talk at BICMC. Kudos to them!

To stave off layoffs, Beth Israel doctors agree to give $350K

The heads of 13 medical departments at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center yesterday said they would collectively donate $350,000 to the Boston hospital in an effort to further reduce planned staff layoffs.

They are also calling on hundreds of other doctors affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess to donate money as a way to save colleagues' jobs.
