The Seton Family of Hospitals is eliminating about 150 positions in a budget-cutting move.
Seton hospital system eliminating 150 jobs
Greg Hartman, president of University Medical Center Brackenridge, said Wednesday that the positions include 74 that are vacant. The rest of the job cuts involve full-time and part-time workers.
Hartman says the jobs being eliminated do not involve direct patient care.
Seton began notifying managers Feb. 10 about the cuts. Hartman says Seton's goal is to trim its budget by 5 percent.
Hartman says Seton is the largest hospital system in central Texas, with a network of 31 facilities, and provided $281 million in charity care during 2008.
Seton, with about 11,500 employees, serves an 11-county population of 1.8 million.
