Marshfield Clinic announces plan to cut jobs

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WEAU) -- A health care provider is planning to lay off dozens of workers.

Marshfield Clinic is planning to cut between 80 and 120 positions. The organization's president and CEO tells the Associated Press that it amounts to nearly 1 percent to 2 percent of the total workforce at Marshfield Clinic. A Marshfield Clinic spokesman says there isn't a breakdown by region of the affected positions. He said the cuts will be finished by mid-July. The jobs are management positions. Marshfield Clinic says the move won't affect patient care.

Two years ago, Marshfield Clinic laid off 100 workers. The organization's leaders announced budget cuts earlier this year. They resulted in a pay cut of 5 percent for doctors and employees who earn more than $125,000. Marshfield Clinic runs about 50 medical centers in central, northern, and western Wisconsin.
