BURBANK : St. Joseph's Hospital to Lay Off 195 Employees

Employees at St. Joseph's Medical Center will have to wait until at least the end of the month to learn who will be among the 195 to be laid off, hospital officials said.

The volume of patients at the 650-bed hospital has dropped even further than had been expected this year, said David O'Neill, acting administrator.

Input from staff and department heads is being sought before a decision is reached on where the cutbacks are to be made and how they are to be scheduled, O'Neill said.
