St. Vincent Health To Restructure Workforce Statewide

Many health facilities are trying to balance availability with cost.

St. Vincent Health is announcing a major restructuring of its workforce.

St. Vincent Health Spokesman Johnny Smith says the restructuring is due to lower budget volumes and a decrease in reimbursements resulting mainly from the Affordable Care Act commonly called Obamacare.

“This will be a reduction in employee and contract associates across our entire system,” Smith says.

Smith says cuts will happen before June 30th and will be across St. Vincent‘s 22 hospital system. St. Vincent has 18,000 employees statewide.

The organization is 132 years old. St. Vincent Health CEO Vince Caponi also cites a mandated reduction in payments.
