More layoffs. . .

this time in the medical field.

Mountain View Regional Hospital in Casper will layoff fifteen of its employees, according to the Tribune.

That they'd be experiencing a slowdown probably shouldn't be regarded as surprising, but just a couple of years ago I recall hearing an opinion expressed by somebody I knew that the medical field was immune from ups and downs, as Casper had become a new regional medical hub. That opinion was expressed by a lawyer, I'd note, not a doctor, but it's typical of the "new era" comments that were so common only a couple of years ago.

Not so much, it would appear.
