Saint Thomas Hospital in Nashville is laying off 50 of its 3,400 staff members within the next 60 days. Staff members were informed Monday and Tuesday of the reductions.

�With revenues declining because fewer patients are being admitted, Saint Thomas has had to make some difficult decisions,� said Paul Lindsley, spokesperson for Saint Thomas.

Hospital administrators have been looking for ways to reduce costs for several months to stay in line with the falling number of patients.
