KU Med Center Cuts 80 Administrative Jobs


KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ The University of Kansas Medical Center has eliminated about 80 of its 3,900 jobs. The cuts came after a university-wide analysis of staffing needs. The medical center cuts affected only administrative positions, not teaching staff. No employees at the University of Kansas Hospital were involved. Barbara Atkinson, University of Kansas executive vice chancellor and dean of the medical school, wrote in a recent newsletter to employees that the job cuts were designed in part to free money for raises to employees, who have not received a pay increase for four years.
