Optum laying off 129, closing Ohio facility

Optum is closing a Change Healthcare facility in Toledo, Ohio, resulting in the termination of 129 employees located in Ohio or working remotely.

The layoffs will occur in three waves from July 15 to Sept. 6, according to regulatory documents filed with the state on May 16. The 93,000-square-foot facility is located at 100 North Byrne Road in Toledo.

In April, former employees with Optum and its subsidiaries took to social media regarding a reduction in force they say occurred across the company. Optum declined to provide more information about the layoffs at the time, and it is unclear if they are connected to the Toledo layoffs.

Optum also laid off an unknown number of employees in August. Affected facilities included the Everett (Wash.) Clinic and the Polyclinic in Seattle; Morgantown, W.Va.-based MedExpress Urgent Care; and San Antonio-based WellMed.
