Mercy eliminates 220 jobs in seven states

ST. LOUIS — A suburban St. Louis hospital chain plans to cut 125 jobs in the region and another 95 positions elsewhere in the Catholic health care system.

Mercy Health announced the layoffs on Tuesday as part of what it called “a response to economic and environmental changes in health care.”

The company said the eliminated jobs represent less than one percent of the company’s 40,000 employees and don’t involve workers who treat patients.

Mercy is the sixth largest Catholic health care system in the U.S. and operates 32 hospitals in Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
