Express Scripts to cut 220 jobs

Express Scripts, a St. Louis-based pharmacy benefits manager, will lay off 220 workers when it closes its office in Trevose, Pa., according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Express Scripts spokesman Brian Henry told The Philadelphia Inquirer the office will close May 26. The 220 layoffs represent about 11 percent of the company's 2,000-person workforce in Pennsylvania.

Mr. Henry said the office in Trevose is no longer needed, as computerized systems have reduced the number of workers necessary to process prescriptions.

This is the second round of layoffs Express Scripts has announced this year. The company plans to cut more than 300 jobs when it closes a call center in Pueblo, Colo., this month.
