Bayada Home Health to close 4 offices, lay off 682 employees

Moorestown, N.J.-based Bayada Home Health Care will close four offices in Florida April 1 and lay off 682 employees, the Tampa Bay Business Journal reported Jan. 24.

The layoffs will affect 306 employees at Bayada's Brooksville location, 150 in Brandon, 144 in Port Richey, 79 in Clearwater and three remote workers, according to Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notices.

The affected employees are mostly home health aides, according to the Business Journal.

Bayada said in a statement shared with Becker's that the organization made the decision to close four locations that provide Medicaid personal care and support services due to several external forces.

"Our current Bayada clients and employees are our top priority during this transition," the statement said. "We are working closely with our key referral partners to help ensure our clients have continued care. We're also working closely with impacted employees as they seek new opportunities, including roles at other Bayada locations throughout the state."
