The company announced Friday afternoon that it will pay the premium cost of health, dental, and life insurance for all furloughed staff, which Hudson Headwaters describes as mostly non-clinical.

The network's CEO says because people are staying home to observe social distancing, daily patient volume is down by more than 50-percent and the furloughs are necessary to keep all the centers open.
