Listen

St. John Health System in Tulsa, Okla., part of St. Louis-based Ascension Health, is laying off employees in its business office, according to a FOX23 report.

The organization attributed the layoffs to cost-cutting measures.

"Through our partnership with [vendor] R1, we are evolving our revenue cycle work to help us meet the needs of individuals in the communities we serve and deliver a better patient experience," St. John officials said in a statement provided to FOX23. They added: "Many associates who hold these positions at Ascension's sites of care will remain in their local facilities, though some positions will be moved to a shared service site in another location. All affected associates will be provided an option to relocate that includes relocation assistance, as well as transition support for associates who decline these positions."

The organization did not specify the exact number of affected employees, but did say physicians and nurses are not affected by the cuts, according to the report.
