IU Health Bloomington plans to cut 50 jobs between now and the end of the year. The hospital system employs about 3,000 workers.
IU Health Bloomington President Mark Moore said in a statement that the local branch has taken other steps to reduce costs, but while those have saved money, they haven’t been enough.
“We have made the difficult decision to reduce some specific positions at IU Health Bloomington,” Moore said. “However, we believe that in order to continue to achieve our mission of providing affordable and quality care to our patients, these reductions are necessary.”
In September, IU Health announced an additional 935 job cuts at six facilities in central Indiana.
