Nearly 20 employees at a Yakima clinic will be getting pink slips soon.

Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital says 19 workers at The Springs rehab center will be laid off.

The center will no longer be offering occupational and physical therapy due to budget cuts.

The hospital says the layoffs and shutdown will go into effect at the end of the month -- but, the facility will continue to offer speech therapy and occupational medicine services.

The hospital says the employees being laid off will have the chance to be considered for future positions at the hospital.
