Waseca & St. James, Minn. (KEYC) - Officials at the Mayo Clinic Health System say they will no longer offer surgical services in Waseca and St. James.
They say low numbers of patients are using those services in the two cities.
As a result, two nursing positions and two surgical technician jobs in Waseca were eliminated and in St. James, three nursing and one surgical tech position were cut.
Mayo officials say staff members can get help finding and applying for positions within Mayo Clinic Health System sites around the region.
At the end of the year, all surgical patients will be offered treatment at Mayo sites in Mankato, New Prague and Fairmont.
