Integris to cut 200 jobs

Oklahoma City-based Integris Health is eliminating 140 caregiver roles as part of a 200-job reduction to curb expenses. 

Integris will also eliminate 60 vacant jobs. The system said "post-pandemic recovery for hospitals has proven to be financially challenging" in a statement shared with local ABC affiliate KOCO 5 News

"We have made the decision to eliminate 200 positions, which includes 140 caregivers leaving the organization," the statement continues. "The affected caregivers have been notified that their positions are being eliminated, and we will be supporting them with this transition. We recognize the very real impact this has on our caregivers." 

Integris refers to all of its employees as "caregivers," even if not in direct patient care roles. The vast majority of these cuts involve corporate and administrative positions, a spokesperson told Becker's.

"The position eliminations, in addition to our focus on the reduction of non-labor expenses, will help position us to remain strong," the health system said in its statement. The timeline of the layoffs or range of caregiver roles affected were not specified in the statement. 

Integris is the largest nonprofit health system in Oklahoma and one of the largest private employers in the state, with nearly 9,000 employees. The system operates 16 hospitals, including those through affiliation.
