Mercy's hospital system is consolidating its physician clinic business office functions and with that comes job cuts.

The Chesterfield-based hospital system announced is cutting 70 jobs--19 here in St. Louis, the rest in Springfield, Mo., and  Oklahoma City. 

Mercy said it's trying to place eligible employees in open positions elsewhere within the company. Severance is being provided to employees based on their length of employment. 

"Mercy’s revenue management division recently completed a consolidation of its hospital and physician clinic business office functions," Mercy said in a statement. "By bringing these teams together, the division will be able to achieve some of the patient satisfaction goals that Mercy has long been working toward, from creating a combined statement covering both hospital and clinic bills, to establishing a single phone number for scheduling appointments." 

Mercy operates 32 hospitals and 300 outpatient facilities in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, and has 38,000 employees.

The FBI is asking for the public's help in identifying who made threats against Southern Illinois University in Carbondale last fall.

 

   The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that authorities say a threat was made against the school last September, a day before a bomb threat forced the late-night evacuation of a campus building. Both threats were mailed.

 

   Calling the threats "frightening," the FBI said Tuesday they were not a harmless prank even though no one was harmed. The agency says evacuations are disruptive.

 

   The FBI says the person behind the threats is likely immature and may have various grievances, been continually angry during last fall's semester "and prone to making rash, if unbelievable, statements about his complaints."

The days are numbered for an iconic building in downtown St. Louis. City officials say the Cupples 7 building is now slated for demolition. It's the only unrenovated structure remaining from the Cupples Station complex located west of Busch Stadium. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says on his website that his administration did everything possible to save the Cupples building, but it has now been deemed a public safety threat. Slay says if there's a developer out there with the money to rehab the building, now would be the time to come forward.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has endorsed a bill that would allow motorcyclists to forgo wearing helmets on the road.

    The measure given first-round approval Tuesday would allow riders over the age of 21 to not wear a helmet when travelling.

   Current law requires motorists to wear helmets or face a fine of up to $300 on the first offense. Future violations carried steeper fines and the possibility of prison sentences.

   The bill needs one more House vote before moving to the Senate. Lawmakers adjourn May 17.
