St. Vincent Health says it has laid off 85 employees throughout the state. In a statement to Inside INdiana Business, St. Vincent says a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment has created "challenges and opportunities" in how best to support patients.

The health system is not saying what types of jobs are affected or where the affected jobs are located. The affected employees are being encouraged to apply for other employment opportunities within the system or will receive transition assistance.

 The layoffs come a little more than a year after St. Vincent cut 111 jobs at five locations throughout the state. At the time, the health system said the cuts were due to a consolidation related to an expanded partnership with a revenue cycle management company.

The full statement on the new layoffs from St. Vincent is below:

The healthcare environment continues to rapidly evolve creating challenges and opportunities in how we best support those we serve. We have the responsibility to transform our delivery system to ensure we have a sustainable model for the future. As a result, we’ve made changes to our staffing structure in various departments across the organization to operate more efficiently. Associates affected by this change will be encouraged to apply for additional employment opportunities within our system, or will receive transition assistance. Throughout this time of change, our focus remains on delivering compassionate, personalized care to all.
