OKLAHOMA CITY –
INTEGRIS Health announced that it is laying off 200 employees because of various financial challenges.
According to a representative, 200 positions, including 140 caregivers have been eliminated and the organization is working to support the employees during this transition.
“The post-pandemic recovery for hospitals has proven to be financially challenging. Hospitals across the industry are projected to have their worst financial year in decades. The reasons for the financial challenges are multifold, but some include a dramatic rise in expenses due to labor shortages and supply-chain disruptions, and significantly lower patient volumes compared to pre-pandemic days. Because of these reasons, health systems across the nation are being faced with difficult decisions,” said Brooke Cayot with INTEGRIS Health.
INTEGRIS Health has hospitals located in the Oklahoma City area as well as Grove and Miami, Oklahoma.
