Franciscan Alliance cuts 125 at Illinois facilities

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Franciscan Alliance is laying off 125 workers at its St. James Hospitals in Chicago Heights and Olympia Fields.

Hospital officials say the cuts are the result of a drop in reimbursement from the federal government and insurance companies. They also say new caps on reimbursements from the affordable care act will make it more difficult to remain profitable and provide quality care.

The layoffs affect about six percent of the St. James workforce.
