Another Twin Cities hospital has announced layoffs.
North Memorial Health Care in Robbinsdale says it will reduce its work force through layoffs and reduced hours, which will impact about 170 employees.
The hospital is looking to eliminate about 100 jobs.
Officials say patient volumes have declined, and the hospital has had a 22 percent increase in uncompensated care.
Hennepin County Medical Center and Park Nicollet Health Services have also announced planned layoffs in recent weeks.
