St. Louis-based Mallinckrodt Medical has decided to slim downto adapt to the increasingly competitive health-care environment,however. The company will shed about 10% of its 5000 employeesworldwide. Mallinckrodt Medical will begin implementing the programearly in fiscal year 1995 (end-June), with the program completedby 1996.
