The Sturgis Hospital Board of Directors has fired the facility's chief executive officer.
The hospital's executive secretary confirmed Tuesday that Rob LaBarge is no longer an employee. She declined to comment further.
Earlier this month, citing budget issues, the hospital closed its birthing center and hospice program. Although the oncology center was also slated for closure, hospital officials later said the department would remain open because of a joint effort with Ascension Borgess.
Nearly 60 people were left without jobs by the changes at Sturgis.
