ABC has released the synopsis for Grey’s Anatomy episode 9×15 “Hard Bargain” which reveals more of the cuts Seattle Grace Mercy West will be making in order to avoid bankruptcy. Warning, they’re a bit shocking.

We know that Dr. Alanna Cahill has come in to make cuts at the hospital in order to try and save it. They’ve already discussed closing down the ER. It also seems like some of the doctors are worried about losing their jobs. Alanna particularly pointed out to Richard that he had logged less OR hours than any other doctor. Now it looks like the patients will be suffering due to the hospital’s finances. The question is, will the surgeons stand by and let this happen?
