Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) -- Government cuts are partly to blame for Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls cutting positions.

The hospital is getting rid of 33 spots, ranging in all aspects of the hospital. Most recently the sequestration on the national level cut 500-thousand dollars from the hospital's budget.

Its CEO says the cuts are necessary for the future of the hospital.

Larry Schulz, the CEO/Administrator, says, "we've made it a point that we wish to remain an independent healthcare organization we feel that's real important for the public that the people who should be making decisions on what healthcare costs and what healthcare services locally should be a local board."

Lake Region is also seeing fewer patients than what was projected.
