12 Employees Laid Off From Baxter HealthCare's Bloomington Facility

Last updated on Wednesday, December 7, 2016

(BLOOMINGTON) - Twelve employees were laid off from Baxter Healthcare’s Bloomington facility last week, the second round of layoffs for the hospital and renal product manufacturer in the past two years.

The Herald Times reports that following 2015's layoff of 36 employees, this round of layoffs marks the second time in as many years that the Bloomington facility at 927 South Curry Pike let workers go after business assessments deemed it necessary.

According to Deborah Spak, Baxter's director of global communications, the layoff affected 12 of the Baxter facility's approximately 650 workers. The employees laid off spanned several different departments and functions.

Spak told the Herald Times the facility has been strategically managing attrition and related backfill of positions, as well as reducing the use of temporary workers, in order to minimize the impact of any necessary reductions in their workforce.
