ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Creve Coeur-based SSM Health says it cut about one percent of its total workforce this week.
they said in a statement the cuts were necessary to ensure long-term stability. Official numbers were not announced but with more than 35 thousand employees, one percent would be roughly 350 people. Some of the cuts will be through attrition, such as retirement and resignations where the jobs go unfilled.
SSM operates in four states – Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
