Central Indiana hospital cutting nearly 70 jobs

December 2, 2014

A central Indiana hospital says it plans to cut nearly 70 jobs by outsourcing its surgical services operations.

Officials of Marion General Hospital said in a state filing Monday that the 69 layoffs will take place during the first two weeks of February and are expected to be permanent. The filing from the hospital doesn't say whether the new contractor will hire any of those workers.

Hospital officials said the outsourcing was part of continuing strategic initiatives for the facility in the Grant County city about 60 miles north of Indianapolis.
