The WARN notice indicates all employees will be affected by the closure of the hospital at 5017 S. 110th St. in Greenfield, which is planned for April 30.

The 62-bed for-profit hospital provides specialized medical care to acutely ill patients requiring extended recovery time after an acute care hospital stay. The average length of stay for patients is more than 25 days.

The notice attributes the closure to “dramatic changes designed to substantially limit the type of patients who could be treated in long-term acute care hospitals.”

Representatives with Post Acute Specialty Hospital of Milwaukee and Post Acute Medical were not available for comment Thursday.

PAM Speciality Hospital of Milwaukee is part of Pennsylvania-based Post Acute Medical, LLC, a network of 46 long-term acute care hospitals, medical rehabilitation hospitals and outpatient physical therapy locations in eight states.

The affected employees do not have bumping rights and are not represented by a union, the notice said.
