LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Baptist Health says it will lay off 170 workers across its network in Arkansas.

The hospital organization said Tuesday the layoffs will mainly affect workers who aren't nurses.

Arkansas Business reports the job cuts are expected to be completed by the end of the week.

Baptist Health has 73,000 workers and hospitals in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Arkadelphia, Heber Springs and Stuttgart.

Spokesman Mark Lowman says the cuts will not affect quality of care. He also says the layoffs are in line with job reductions made by other hospitals.
