Southcoast Health to Lay Off Dozens

Southcoast Health System in New Bedford, Mass., plans to lay off up to 60 employees, according to a Southcoast Today report.

The layoffs will affect both union and non-union employees and will affect several departments, according to the report.

Southcoast is making the workforce cuts because of issues presented by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to the report. The system employs roughly 7,500 people, so the cuts represent less than 1 percent of its total workforce.
