Minnesota-based medical center cuts 100 jobs as state funds are reduced
Hennepin County Medical Center, Minnesota's biggest safety-net hospital, is cutting 100 jobs and freezing capital spending at a time when demand for its services is growing. HCMC blamed the moves on reductions in state funding announced last month. The 100 jobs, which represent 3% of the hospital workforce, will disappear by the end of February. About 80% of them are vacant; the rest will come from a combination of layoffs and reduced hours.
