Mercy hiring several patient care positions; Not affected by upcoming cuts

Updated:

Mercy is committed to keeping our ministry strong and vital, both for our co-workers and our communities. Over the past decade, while we have made good progress in adapting to a constantly shifting health care landscape, the challenges we face require us to move faster than ever in keeping pace with change and meeting the evolving needs of our communities.Financially, Mercy faces increasing challenges to our reimbursement structure as we adjust to reductions mandated by the Affordable Care Act and other budget cuts, as well as the lack of Medicaid expansion in most of our states. Clinically and culturally, there continue to be opportunities to further standardize care and operational practices, in order to support the highest levels of quality and safety, as well as minimize the cost of variation.

In light of all of these factors, Mercy is in the process of simplifying our organizational structure and realigning our workforce in order to gain efficiencies and reduce costs. Exceptional patient care, quality and safety will continue to be our priority. These organizational changes will include the elimination of between 300 and 350 positions across four states, the majority of which are leadership roles. Affected individuals will be notified next week.

We recognize the impact of these changes on our co-workers and their families, and our transition plan will reflect our commitment to dignity and compassion. Mercy's total workforce numbers nearly 40,000, including approximately 2,500 leadership positions.
