MU Health Care Will Lay Off Employees

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOX) – University of Missouri Health Care will lay off or cut the hours and pay for 35 employees and eliminate 90 unfilled jobs in the coming year.

MU Health Care spokeswoman Mary Jenkins tells The Columbia Daily Tribune that the job losses are due to cuts in federal health care payments from Medicare and the failure of legislators to expand Medicaid eligibility.

MU Health employs 5,200 workers, not including medical staff.
