SPRINGFIELD -- More people are going to be without work. St. John's Hospital is handing out pink slips to 43 managers. Hospital officials say, in response to financial pressures from the Affordable Care Act and lower reimbursements from Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers, they had no choice but to eliminate the positions. Non-management positions are not affected by the change.
