INDIANAPOLIS Indiana University Health now says it will cut more than 900 jobs in a reorganization brought on by changes in health care. That's at least 100 more than announced nearly three weeks ago.

WTHR-TV reports IU Health came up with the new cuts after reviewing its business more closely.

The cuts go into effect Dec. 1 and IU Health expected to begin notify employees Tuesday. 1. Some employees will be offered early retirement at age 62. The cuts will impact IU Health workers at Methodist, University, Riley, North, Saxony, Tipton and Ball Memorial hospitals.

IU Health employs around 36,000 people statewide. It says it's looking to save $1 billion in costs over the next five years.
