Emory Healthcare to Chop 100 Jobs

Atlanta-based Emory Healthcare will lay off about 100 employees, effective Nov. 15, according to a WSB-TV report.

The system is closing a neuropsychiatry unit at Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital in Atlanta and combining two psychiatry units into one, according to the report, leading to the layoffs. Emory sent a notification letter to 101 employees who will be affected by the changes, according to the report.

In a statement to WSB-TV, the system said: "The purpose of these changes is to ensure that we provide the most appropriate care in the most appropriate setting for adult and geriatric psychiatry patients, and to provide modern facilities that are comfortable for patients, family members and staff, with efficient processes and services, while ensuring the ideal management of our resources in this economy."
