BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - One of the two hospitals in Bismarck is closing departments and laying off workers.

CHI St. Alexius Health is closing its inpatient pediatric and rehab units, laying off 23 employees and reassigning another 39 to other areas of care.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/251H7yd ) that the hospital attributed the moves to “new models of care and reimbursement methods affecting the health care industry.”

The hospital employs about 2,400 people, and the layoffs represent less than 1 percent of its workforce.
