Mayo-Fairmont to cut 17 nursing positions

Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont, Minn., said it plans to cut 17 positions, effective Dec. 9, according to the Sentinel.

A statement issued to the newspaper indicates the cuts will affect nursing staff in the hospital and progressive care unit at Mayo-Fairmont.

The decision was made after "carefully assessing the need to align staffing levels with our average daily hospital census," Mayo said. "Staffing decisions are based on patient need and always meet regulatory staffing level requirements."

In its statement, Mayo said part of its decision also involved moving progressive care unit beds to standard med/surg hospital beds, "as the majority of hospitalized patients can be cared for in med/surg."

Mayo said it is trying to help affected workers find and apply for new jobs in the region and organization.
