FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — The second-largest hospital in Fresno plans to lay off 75 workers in response to continued economic hurdles and a dwindling number of patients.

The Fresno Bee reports Saint Agnes Medical Center began notifying affected employees on Wednesday.

Hospital spokeswoman Kelley Sanchez would not clarify which members of the hospital's staff of 2,724 were impacted. This is the third staff reduction in the last four years at the hospital, which is owned by Michigan-based Trinity Health.

Saint Agnes says lower government reimbursements also led to the staff reductions.

Other local hospitals also have cut staff in recent years. Community Medical Centers laid off 150 office and support workers two years ago, also citing falling government payments to its hospitals in Fresno and Clovis.
