KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ The University of Kansas Medical Center
has eliminated about 80 of its 3,900 jobs.

The cuts came after a university-wide analysis of staffing needs.

The Kansas City Star reports the medical center cuts affected only administrative positions, not teaching staff. No employees at the University of Kansas Hospital were involved.

Barbara Atkinson, an executive with the medical center, wrote in
a recent newsletter to employees that the job cuts were designed in
part to free money for raises to employees, who have not received a
pay increase for four years.
