One popular institution is cutting Atlanta healthcare jobs.

Saint Joseph’s Hospital of Atlanta Inc. has announced its plan to get rid of 50 jobs, or about 2.5 percent of its workforce, blaming a need for the cuts on a deteriorating economy.

The major Atlanta hospital confirmed it will achieve about 20 of those cuts through attrition and the rest through involuntary layoffs, according to an article by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
