Catholic Health is cutting about 200 jobs, more than half of which will come from employee buyouts it offered last month.
The health system, which has about 10,000 employees, said the rest of the job cuts will come from layoffs, job vacancies and consolidations. The reductions affect both management and non-management positions.
Catholic Health, the region’s second-largest health system, announced it had offered buyouts to an undisclosed number of nonclinical employees in the face of declining revenues.
“We are taking a methodical and measured approach to deal with the constant state of change health care providers across the country are experiencing while ensuring we continue to develop and deliver the type of care our patients have come to expect,” said Mark Sullivan, Catholic Health’s president
