St. Mary's Innovis lays off 19 as more put off health care
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.
