The Asbury Park Press says the Toms River facility, which employs 2,600, eliminated 85 positions including management, administrative and clinical workers.

Hospital Chief Executive Officer Stephanie Bloom in a statement says the affected employees can receive a severance package or apply for other jobs.

The Barnabas Health System points to Washington’s sequester as one of the reasons.
