Mercy Lays off Workers in Joplin and Carthage

Layoffs at Mercy Hospital locations throughout the area have started. Mercy made the announcement today (Monday), saying that 11 positions in Joplin and 14 in Carthage have been eliminated as part of 220 jobs being lost across Mercy's 40,000-member workforce. The reduction is being limited to non-patient care support areas. Mercy announced earlier this month that a lack of Medicaid expansion and low reimbursement from the government would be forcing the job cuts.
