WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -- The economy may force a North Georgia health system to make more cuts.

Over the past two months, Hamilton Health Care System has cut about a hundred positions through attrition and combining positions.

Six teams are meeting this week, discussing ways to cut costs without affecting services.

Officials hope to cut about 12-million dollars.

The teams are expected to make their final recommendations, possibly this week.
