Via Christi Health plans to cut up to 400 positions in a cost cutting move, the provider announced in a news release.

The cuts would reflect a four percent reduction in Via Christi's statewide workforce. Via Christi will eliminate some recently vacated positions and will offer voluntary reductions. The reductions will take place through the end of June.

In addition, senior managers will take salary reductions of four percent.

Via Christi has seen recent declines in hospital and doctors' visits. “These declines have been taking place over several years but they have accelerated at Via Christi since the snow storms in February and have not bounced back,” said Jeff Korsmo, president and CEO for Via Christi Health.
