SANTA FE (AP) - A Santa Fe hospital that is the city's largest private employer is reducing its work force in what it is says is a response to the federal health law.
    
Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center says it is laying off 36 employees and changing additional employees' assignments and hours.
    
Vice President Lillian Montoya says the hospital is realigning some of its services to conform to the health law's goal of reducing hospitals' inpatient populations.
    
Christus St. Vincent still has nearly 1,950 employees.
    
The hospital had an operating surplus of $6.3 million on annual revenue of $330 million last year, and CEO Bruce Tassin says that's a very small surplus for an operation of the size of Christus St. Vincent.
