Via Christi Health revises number of layoffs

Wichita, Kan.-based Via Christi Health said it is laying off employees as it transitions parts of its billing cycle to national vendor R1 RCM, The Wichita Eagle reports.

Billing employees affected by the layoffs are in Wichita, Manhattan and Pittsburg, Kan.

Last summer, the hospital informed approximately 70 billing employees they would lose their jobs this year with the R1 transition, according to the report.

Via Christi now says fewer than 25 people may lose their jobs, according to the report. A hospital spokesperson told The Wichita Eagle that's partly because some of those employees have taken other jobs at Via Christi or somewhere else.

More than 220 additional employees were previously told they could continue working at Via Christi as employees of R1, Via Christi CFO Carol Karp told the publication via email.
