Mason City, IA, hospitals cuts jobs, not workers

AP/Chicago Tribune, March 12, 2009

Mason City-based Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa says it will eliminate 59 jobs as it restructures its home healthcare service and hospice program. It also is closing a clinic in Rockwell. Officials cite several factors for the cuts, including unfavorable investment returns, rising costs of uncompensated care, and expected decreases in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements.
