Saint Thomas Health Services execs have eliminated about 100 positions at their flagship facility and another 50 at Baptist Hospital. The cuts amount to about 2 percent of the regional hospital system's staff. Getahn Ward has the details.
All support areas of the two hospitals were affected, with most departments seeing two or three jobs cut, Climer said, adding that no cuts were made in clinical areas or at the system’s hospital in Murfreesboro. More than half of the affected positions were already vacant or open, she said.
