The recent layoffs at St. Mary's Innovis in Detroit Lakes eliminated 19 jobs, with most of the cuts involving part-time positions.

St. Mary's Innovis CEO Tom Thompson said the cuts come from the effects of the recession that is also hitting the health-care industry.


"When I meet with community groups, a lot of folks don't realize that health care is not recession-proof," Thompson said.

Attrition worked for a while, Thompson said, but it wasn't enough.
