Acelity is reducing its workforce by approximately 265 employees, according to a recent report from the San Antonio Business Journal.
The layoffs include roughly 200 individuals from its Alamo City, Texas-based facilities, with the remaining coming from its Charlotte, N.C.-based location, according to the report.
“Unfortunately, this will result in position eliminations for some of our colleagues in San Antonio and Charlotte in the coming months. While this decision is difficult, it is necessary as we expand our commitment to improving our customers’ experience. We are communicating with our teams now so that we can maintain transparency and work together through this process. We are fully committed to offering support and resources, including employee assistance, career counseling and outplacement services to minimize the disruption for those who will be departing the company later this year,” Acelity spokesperson Maggie Fairchild said, according to the Business Journal.
The San Antonio-based company will reportedly close its Charlotte facilities after it finishes layoffs in the region, which are slated to come in four phases, according to a separate Charlotte Business Journal report.
The layoffs come after Acelity “carefully analyzed its business situation and its available options,” according to the report.
Last December, Acelity subsidiary KCI said that it inked a negative pressure wound therapy remote monitoring deal using its iOn Progress remote therapy monitoring program with health insurer Highmark, touting it as the first such agreement of its kind.
