BRIDGEPORT -- Officials at St. Vincent's Medical Center plan an unspecified number of layoffs and other cuts to help offset the expected loss of revenue from state funds, federal sequestration and other sources.

Hospital officials said Wednesday the "cost restructuring" will include the loss of some jobs.

"We're not sure of the number right now, but the layoffs will be across all levels," said Dr. Stuart Marcus, hospital president.

It's also unknown what other cuts the hospital will make, but senior vice president Dianne Auger said, "All operating expenses in our organization are under review."

Marcus said the hospital is trying to anticipate as many measures as possible that could sap its funds.

For instance, in the state budget proposed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, hospitals stand to lose $550 million in state aid over two years.

Marcus said this will shake out to a loss of about $30 million for St. Vincent's. The hospital also will lose about $5 million in fiscal year 2014 because of the federal sequestration.

Right now, the hospital is operating in the black, Marcus said, but that will likely change in the near future.

"We are not in crisis but we want to be proactive," he said.
