ProMedica lays off 20 administrative workers

Toledo, Ohio-based ProMedica is laying off about 20 administrative workers, a health system spokesperson confirmed with Becker's.

"The decision was difficult, but consistent with ProMedica's evolving priorities and responsibilities," the spokesperson said. "We feel for those individuals who have been affected and are working with them through their transition."

The smaller round of layoffs, affecting about one-tenth of a percent of ProMedica employees, comes after the health system laid off 262 employees in January. In August, the health system reported a $39.8 million operating loss.

While the second quarter figures were an improvement on the prior-year period, the health system has been canceling new hospital projects as it looks to stabilize its financial situation.

"While it was no longer feasible for the organization to maintain those particular administrative positions, it is important to note that ProMedica continues to have ample clinical and patient-focused employment opportunities that support our strengthened focus on and investment in being the leading regional health system."
