MARSHALL, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Oaklawn Hospital official confirmed to Newschannel 3 on Friday that the hospital is reducing its staff.

The hospital will be eliminating 43 jobs in an effort to cut costs.

On Monday, the hospital started notifing affected employees.

They will continue working until June 27.

Nearly 1,000 people work at the hospital.

Oaklawn had a loss of about $5 million in its 2014 operational budget.

The cuts are expected to save the hospital about $3 million this year.

Oaklawn says the cuts are due to changes in the economy and medical insurance plans.
