Kaiser to cut 115 IT jobs

Kaiser Permanente is laying off 115 IT positions nationwide, with the majority in Northern California, The San Francisco Standard reported Dec.8.

The Oakland, Calif.-based health system "made the difficult but necessary decision" in November. While no union workers were impacted by these layoffs, 65 cuts are based in Northern California: 12 in three of Kaiser's Oakland offices, one in South San Francisco, one in Walnut Creek, and 41 in the system's Pleasanton office, a Kaiser spokesperson told the publication. 

News of the layoffs comes after 49 Kaiser workers were laid off across two East Bay cities and in Southern California in early October. 

"We do not make decisions lightly that affect our valued employees," a spokesperson for Kaiser shared in a statement with Becker's. "We are committed to ensuring everyone is treated with respect and gratitude for their contributions. If an impacted employee cannot be retained in another position, or chooses not to remain with Kaiser Permanente, we offer generous severance packages, career support, and outplacement services."

With currently over 13,000 open positions, Kaiser has around 220,000 employees and 24,000 physicians. None of the recent layoffs will impact the system's patient care and service, the Kaiser spokesperson told Becker's
