KentuckyOne Health to Lay Off 40 Employees at St. Joseph Hospitals

KentuckyOne Health has laid off 40 employees at St. Joseph Hospital and St. Joseph Hospital East in Lexington, Ky., according to a Lexington Herald-Leader report.

KentuckyOne formed earlier this year when St. Joseph Health System in Lexington and Louisville, Ky.-based Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare merged.

A system spokesperson attributed the layoffs to a decrease in patient demand, according to the report. The types of positions eliminated and how many layoffs would occur at each hospital were not confirmed.
