Five jobs cut at Sisu Healthcare

Five positions have been eliminated at Duluth-based Sisu Healthcare IT Solutions, and its CEO has resigned.

Scott Lee, who had been CEO for five years, stepped aside on Nov. 3, said Hilary McCausland, the company’s human resources director, in an email response to a News Tribune inquiry. The firm’s board had put interim leadership in place and a search for a new CEO would be launched in the “very near future,” McCausland wrote.

The five positions were eliminated as part of a restructuring in September. “Healthcare IT is a constantly changing industry, and we as a company need to change with it,” she wrote.

Sisu was founded in 1997 as a nonprofit cooperative to serve the information technology needs of Northeastern Minnesota hospitals. It became a for-profit entity in 2012.
