Via Christi Health cutting jobs throughout Kansas


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Wichita-based Via Christi Health says tough finances are forcing it to eliminate 350 to 400 jobs at its facilities throughout Kansas.

The nonprofit health system announced the decision Tuesday, saying it will involve layoffs and the elimination of some vacant positions. The cuts amount to about 4 percent of Via Christi’s total employment.

The reductions are expected to take place by the end of June. Via Christi says that senior leaders will take salary reductions of about 4 percent.

President and CEO Jeff Korsmo said the system is not operating at a loss, but revenue is about $18 million below budget 10 months into its current fiscal year.
