Cardinal cuts

Cardinal Health Inc. said Tuesday its clinical and medical products unit will eliminate 1,300 jobs, with most of the cuts made over the next six months, as hospitals cut back on equipment purchases.

Cardinal plans to spin the unit off later this year under the name CareFusion Corp. Cardinal said the business will lay off 800 people and eliminate 500 more jobs through attrition. The region most affected by the job cuts is southern California, with 200 jobs in San Diego being eliminated.
