Falling revenue and cuts in government funding will force the layoffs of 121 employees at St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, officials announced Thursday. The layoffs are expected to help the 333-bed hospital recover from the low HMO reimbursements and rising medical costs that contributed to a $3.5-million drop in revenue so far this fiscal year, said Alain Jourdier, a spokesman for Orange-based St. Joseph Health System, which is St. Jude's parent company.
