Mississippi health system cuts more than 100 jobs

Meridian, Miss-based Rush Health Systems is cutting 4 percent of its 2,800-person workforce, or about 112 jobs, according to WTOK

The hospital will scale back its workforce through layoffs, early retirements and by leaving open positions unfilled.  

Rush Health Systems officials said in a statement to WTOK that the hospital is making the cuts to offset lower reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid.

Although the system didn't provide details on the positions affected, Scott Vincent, human resources director of Rush Health Systems, said in a statement to WTOK that the hospital tried to eliminate positions with the least impact on patient care.
