Two non-clinical positions between Miami and Grove were among 171 that were eliminated by Integris Health on Monday, Aug. 5.
Most of the jobs eliminated were corporate, non-clinical positions according to a statement.
Integris Miami Hospital and Integris Grove Hospital are part of an Oklahoma City-based healthcare system that serves 49 Oklahoma towns and cities.
In a statement released Monday regarding the layoffs:
“Health care continues to be a dynamic industry that requires health systems like Integris to transform and adapt to market realities. Integris is committed to getting in front of the challenging market dynamics to ensure Integris stays well positioned for the future.
“At the beginning of our fiscal year, we determined several adjustments were necessary. As of today, we are eliminating 171 positions—most of which are corporate, non-clinical positions. Although this reduction represents only 1.6% of our 10,400-caregiver workforce, we recognize it has real impact. When a position is eliminated, every effort is made to match the outplaced individual to an open Integris position. Where no match exists, we provide resources and assist in locating another employment opportunity.
“Integris continues to be well positioned but we must focus our resources on patient care services to ensure our patients and families can continue to depend on us in their times of greatest need,” the statement concluded.
