FARGO - Ninety MeritCare employees lost their jobs Thursday and a rural clinic in LaMoure, N.D., will close at the end of the month as North Dakota's largest health-care system strives to improve its bottom line.


Ninety other MeritCare employees will work fewer hours and 120 vacant positions will be eliminated, said Dr. Roger Gilbertson, president and chief executive officer.

"It's a sad day but an important one for MeritCare," he said.
