28 jobs cut at CHI St. Vincent in Arkansas

CHI St. Vincent has cut 28 hospital positions in Arkansas, attributing the move to shifting healthcare needs, Arkansas Business reported.

The move affects nine vacant positions and 19 filled ones.

"As we strive to meet the changing demands for care in the communities we serve, we continuously assess our resources and how best to utilize them effectively and efficiently," the company told the weekly business journal. "When staffing adjustments are necessary, we work closely with affected employees to identify other opportunities in our system for which they may be qualified."

CHI St. Vincent, based in Little Rock, Ark., is part of Chicago-based CommonSpirit Health, formed Feb. 1 through a merger with San Francisco-based Dignity Health and Englewood, Colo.-based Catholic Health Initiatives.

CHI St. Vincent has hospitals in Little Rock, Hot Springs, Morrilton and Sherwood. Its website states that its operations include more than 4,500 employees, 1,000 medical staff and 500 volunteers.
