Baptist Health, a major health-care provider based in Louisville, has announced a restructuring plan that will eliminate 288 employees.
“This continues to be a time of both transformation and great uncertainty in the health-care industry,” the company said in a news release. “Baptist Health is realigning its structure to best meet the needs of our patients and communities within a challenging financial environment.”
Baptist Health operates facilities in seven Kentucky markets, including Lexington, and one in Southern Indiana. Officials said the 288 job cuts represent 1 percent of the company’s workforce. It said a majority of the cuts, 149 jobs, would be made to administrative positions at its Louisville headquarters.
Baptist Health said all terminated employees will receive severance and job placement assistance.
