MultiCare Will Lay Off 350 Staff in Washington

MultiCare Health System will eliminate as many as 350 jobs in Pierce County, Wash., effective on Oct. 7, 2011. The layoffs constitute about 4% of its workforce of 9,400.

MultiCare said that the layoffs are due to “a very tough environment due to declining reimbursement for the services that we provide.”

MultiCare is a leading-edge, integrated health organization made up of four hospitals including Allenmore Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Tacoma General Hospital, numerous primary care and urgent care clinics, multi-specialty centers, Hospice and Home Health services, and many other services.

The Plant Prospector is a weekly e-mail service that identifies national, regional, and local plants and businesses in transition through layoffs, closings, and work force reductions.  A reduction in the number of employees is an indication of a current or imminent change in the operations of an enterprise and is invaluable in identifying companies including private firms, small public companies, and subsidiaries of major corporations that are in flux.  Plant Prospector is an ideal prospecting tool for firms that provide services to businesses in transition, such as temporary employment agencies and outplacement firms, and for companies whose business may be affected by change, such as suppliers, professional firms, and insurance companies.
