Borgess confirms a reduction in workforce due to ACA

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Borgess Medical Center confirmed Wednesday that they will have to reduce their workforce due to the Affordable Care Act.

The hospital is not saying how many jobs may be affected, but says the cuts are due to the impact of Medicaid payment reductions.

Borgess says the reductions cut about $140 million over a 10 year period.

It says the cuts will not eliminate or change any services, and Borgess points out it's not the only health system in this situation.
