Hillcrest Healthcare System Lays Off Administrators

Tulsa, Okla.-based Hillcrest Healthcare System is laying off about 50 employees, or roughly 1 percent of its workforce, according to a Tulsa World report.

The system employs about 5,000 people. Affected employees are in primarily administrative positions, and the layoffs will not affect workers who directly care for patients, according to the report.

A hospital spokeswoman told the Tulsa World the layoffs are the system's response to healthcare reform and the state's decision to not expand Medicaid.
