According to information first reported by Becker’s Hospital Review, Kaiser Permanente is laying off 76 employees in California, with 25 of those positions based in Pasadena, according to regulatory documents filed with the state on May 1. The workforce reductions, which will be completed by June 21, primarily affect IT and marketing roles.

In addition to the Pasadena layoffs, the job cuts will impact 33 employees in Pleasanton, 11 in Oakland, 3 in San Diego, 2 in Downey, and 1 each in Sacramento and Burbank.

Since October, Kaiser has laid off more than 300 employees, including those in IT and administrative positions.

In a statement sent to Pasadena Now from its Southern California regional headquarters in Pasadena, the company said, “Kaiser Permanente is continually evaluating our operations and services to ensure we deliver on our mission of providing high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.”

“We do not make these tough decisions lightly, and appreciate the individuals affected by these staffing changes have made important contributions to Kaiser Permanente,” the statement continued.

“We are committed to helping them transition into other roles within Kaiser Permanente or where necessary will provide generous severance packages, career support and outplacement services.”

Kaiser emphasized that the changes will not affect patient care and service quality, stating, “It is important to note that none of these changes will affect the quality of Kaiser Permanente’s patient care and service, which is always our primary focus.”

The organization also noted that no union-represented employees were impacted by the layoffs.

The job cuts represent a small percentage of Kaiser’s total workforce, which includes approximately 235,000 employees and 25,000 physicians. Despite the layoffs, Kaiser has various open positions available across the country.

Kaiser Permanente, founded in 1945, is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health plans, known for its pioneering approach to providing high-quality, affordable healthcare services.

The organization serves 12.5 million members in multiple states, including California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
