As a court Tuesday gave Hadassah Medical Center a 90-day reprieve from creditors and appointed trustees to develop a bailout plan, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, which owns the hospital, blamed the mounting debt on administrators who were not forthcoming.

Jerusalem — The Israeli government has agreed in principle to provide “significant” financial aid to cash-strapped Hadassah Medical Center provided the hospital cuts expenses and staff — another 350 jobs are slated to be cut by 2016 — and finds ways to increase income, according to the hospital’s director-general.

Hadassah Medical Center is preparing to lay off some 200 doctors, nurses, administrative, maintenance and clerical workers this month, and its parent organization may this summer begin pumping in perhaps more than $10 million as the hospital continues struggling for its very survival, The Jewish Week has learned.

The hospital is now bracing for a threatened employee strike once the layoffs are announced.
