Florida Hospital Medical Group to lay off 67 workers as it outsources billing

Florida Hospital Medical Group, which is affiliated with Orlando-based Florida Hospital and is a subsidiary of Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based Adventist Health System, plans to lay off 67 employees in 2017, according to WMFE news. 

The layoffs represent about 3 percent of the multispecialty medical group's 2,000 employees.

Most of the affected workers are insurance and refund specialists who will no longer be needed when the medical group outsources its central billing function and implements a new EMR platform.

All employees affected by the layoffs are able to apply for other positions within Florida Hospital, according to the report.
