The article reports that many U.S. health systems and hospitals have trimmed jobs through attrition and layoffs.

Layoffs at its flagship Minneapolis hospital helped Allina Hospitals & Clinics rebound after the system's investment in information technology eroded the system's cash reserves in late 2006.
