Healthcare management has evolved in recent years. From the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the subsequent dilluting thereof to state-by-state Medicaid expansion and the lightning fast technical developments in medicine, it can be difficult to keep up with the trends in healthcare.

The new owners of an Idaho hospital laid off 6 percent of its staff, including the chief medical officer and some nurses.

The St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston eliminated 62 positions on Thursday, leaving the hospital with 956 employees, the Lewiston Tribune reported. RCCH HealthCare Partners acquired the hospital located near the state's border with Washington in May.
