BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- St. Vincent's Health System is laying off 74 workers and closing another 55 open positions in an effort to make the 4,700-employee organization more efficient.
Neeysa Biddle, the system's interim CEO, said no nurses delivering bedside care were let go Tuesday.
The Catholic health system is working to turn around two years of losses, attributable in part to St. Vincent's merger with Eastern Health System in 2007.
Almost all of the job reductions will be in Birmingham, including 24 at corporate headquarters and systemwide positions.
