Sutter Health to lay off 72 with closure of 2 units

Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health plans to close the skilled nursing and sub-acute units at Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center St. Luke's campus in San Francisco on Oct. 31, according the San Francisco Business Times.

The closure of the two units will affect 72 employees. In a letter to employees sent last week, Edward Battista, vice president of human resources at Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center, said layoffs will occur throughout August, according to the report.

Sutter spokesman Dean Fryer told the San Francisco Business Times the closure of the two units is part of the hospital's transition into a new campus, which is set to occur in early 2019.

"CPMC has assembled a team to work with patients and their families and our community partners to ensure a smooth transition to a care facility of their choice," Mr. Fryer told the San Francisco Business Times. "CPMC is also working with staff members who are impacted by the closure, and their union representatives, to identify various options including job retraining, alternative placement within CPMC as well as or other opportunities."
