San Antonio-based Nix Health will lay off up to 741 employees when it closes a hospital and other healthcare facilities, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

The health system plans to close Nix Medical Center in San Antonio and its facility in Alamo Heights, Texas. Los Angeles-based Prospect Medical Holdings, which owns Nix Health, has not provided a precise date the hospital will close. Nix Health also plans to close its specialty health and behavioral center in San Antonio and its home health division.

The combined closures are expected to result in up to 741 layoffs, according to the San Antonio Business Journal, which cited the most recent Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act Notification Act notices filed with the state.
