BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A health care provider in Bismarck is laying off more employees, the third round of layoffs in the past year.

CHI St. Alexius Health says the 131-year-old company is responding to the pressures of health care reform. St. Alexius is affiliated with the larger Catholic Health Initiative, which is operating at a loss and struggling with a credit rating downgrade.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/2meqtJz ) says CHI St. Alexius has laid off another 19 employees in addition to 52 people who were let go in January. Less than a year ago, about five dozen employees were laid off or reassigned.
