SSM Health Care cutting jobs

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-based nonprofit hospital system is cutting jobs. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/19zhw51 ) reports that SSM Health Care is making the announcement this week to employees. Spokeswoman Kristen Johnson says that out of respect for affected workers, details won't be made public until later this week. Some health care organizations, including BJC HealthCare in St. Louis, have cut staffs in part due to reduced government reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid services. Johnson declined to say why SSM's layoffs were necessary. SSM has 18 hospitals, two nursing homes and more than 150 outpatient sites and operates in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
