Carthage Area Hospital is laying off 20 percent of its workforce in an effort to increase efficiency and save money.
Citing changes in the healthcare industry, the hospital is consolidating its critical care unit and the medical, surgical, pediatric unit from 30 beds to 10.
Dietary services will also be combined with the Meadowbrook Terrace assisted living facility. Officials say the changes do not impact the patient care of services offered at the hospital.
