Baylor Scott & White Health, a 48-hospital nonprofit health system based in Dallas, plans to lay off 711 employees by March 1, according to a recently filed Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notice.

All of the workers will be laid off from 113-bed Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Garland (Texas), which the health system will close Feb. 28. Baylor Scott & White decided to shut down the hospital, which has incurred significant financial losses over the last three years, after scaling back services and trying to secure a new owner for the facility without success.

Although the closure will affect 711 employees, the health system told Becker's Hospital Review it intends to place a portion of the workers in comparable positions at other facilities in its network.

The closure will also result in 105 workers at Aramark, a food service provider to the hospital, losing their jobs, according to a WARN notice filed in late December.
