Kaiser laying off 76 in California 

Oakland-based Kaiser Foundation Hospitals is laying off 76 employees in California, primarily in IT and marketing, according to regulatory documents filed with the state May 1. 

By June 21, the workforce reductions will affect 33 employees in Pleasanton, 25 in Pasadena, 11 in Oakland, 3 in San Diego, 2 in Downey, and 1 each in Sacramento and Burbank.

Kaiser has laid off more than 300 employees since October, including IT and administrative positions. 

"Kaiser Permanente is continually evaluating our operations and services to ensure we deliver on our mission of providing high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve," a Kaiser spokesperson told Becker's.

"We do not make these tough decisions lightly, and appreciate the individuals affected by these staffing changes have made important contributions to Kaiser Permanente. We are committed to helping them transition into other roles within Kaiser Permanente or where necessary will provide generous severance packages, career support and outplacement services."

"It is important to note that none of these changes will affect the quality of Kaiser Permanente's patient care and service, which is always our primary focus. In addition, no union-represented employees were affected by this change."

The job cuts are a small percentage of Kaiser's total workforce, with about 235,000 employees and 25,000 physicians. The organization also has a variety of open positions across the country.
