195 jobs, 85 positions cut at University of Mississippi Medical Center - Jerry Mitchell , The Clarion-Ledger

University of Mississippi Medical Center officials on Thursday announced a decision to layoff 195 workers in an attempt to cope with a $32.7 million cut in revenue from the state. That cut is so big “it’s impossible for any organization mid-year to absorb that and continue on, business as usual,” said Dr. LouAnn Woodward, vice chancellor for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine. Another 85 open positions also are being cut to address the shortfall, of which $24 million hospital leaders said was unanticipated. In addition, 439 faculty members at the teaching hospital have taken pay cuts. Woodward said her main focus was to make adjustments “without negatively impacting the patient experience or academic integrity.” http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2017/03/16/ummc-layoffs/99264880/
