Renown Health lays off 61 employees

Reno, Nev.-based Renown Health laid off 61 employees, less than 1 percent of the nonprofit health system's workforce, according to a Reno Gazette Journal report.

"We take any decision to end any person's employment very seriously, and we regret the necessity of it," Michelle Sanchez-Bickley, the system's chief human resources officer, told the Journal. "We will do everything possible to help those affected find new opportunities, either within or outside Renown Health."

The layoffs are part of restructuring efforts at Renown. The system said it is embarking on a new three-year strategic plan to improve efficiency and increase convenience for patients through expanded services.

Laid-off employees reportedly include administrators and managers but not those in direct patient care roles.

Renown is the only locally owned, nonprofit health system in Reno. According to the report, the system has 7,100 employees, including physicians, nurses and care providers.
