Baylor Scott & White Health is cutting 145 jobs in Central Texas as part of a plan to outsource and retrain a portion of its workforce.
According to documents filed with the Texas Workforce Commission, Baylor Scott & White is cutting 83 jobs at its facility located at 3161 Eagles Nest Street in Round Rock and 62 jobs at its facility located at 12940 N. U.S. 183 in Austin.
Baylor Scott & White said the job cuts are part of a restructuring plan announced in January. The system will begin contracting a portion of services currently performed by five departments in an effort to reduce costs and "make an even greater investment in frontline care."
"Our goal is that every employee involved with this transition will be offered the opportunity to secure a comparable employment option, inside or outside the health system, and no one will miss a paycheck because of this transition," a Baylor Scott & White spokesperson told KVUE. "Nearly two-thirds of the involved employees will be offered the opportunity to work for the new service providers, doing a job similar to what they do today, but for a new company."
