Vanderbilt University Medical Center has begun what could be a two-year span of layoffs. The medical center laid off hundreds of employees this month as it looks to cut $250 million.

The hospital says it's receiving less money from Medicare and Medicaid, the cost of treating the uninsured is rising, and grant money for research is being reduced.

Vanderbilt compared the situation to the housing bubble, which dramatically impacted the U.S. economy.

It's something state medical officials worry will have a significant impact across the industry.

Doctors say uncertainty over the Affordable Care Act is also stressing the system.

Employees who have been hit by the layoffs contacted lawyers with concerns of possible violations of both state and federal laws, which has prompted an investigation.

Further complicating the layoffs is that Vanderbilt aggressively pursues "diversity".

Look for "I was layed off 'cuz a my skin coler" complaints to begin in 5... 4... 3...

I have three in-laws that work for Vanderbilt. I couldn't work in that environment - my belief in responsibility is too strong.

Rectum the $20,000 or so in the government estimated cost of insuring a family of four under obamacare is too low. Hmm. How could such a self professed smart bunch be soooo wrong about everything they pour their minds into?
