Kansas City Star, November 19, 2008

Citing an effort to better manage expenses, Kansas City-based St. Luke's Health System laid off 61 management and administrative employees. The cutbacks impacted less than 1% of the health system’s workforce, and did not include any direct patient-care positions. According to officials, the job cuts occurred in the corporate offices. The health system, which operates 11 hospitals in the Kansas City region, will also close the cranial and craniofacial programs at St. Luke's Hospital at the end of this year.
