Northwest Texas Healthcare says it’ll be laying off employees as a part of restructuring—functional areas and departments.

Healthcare officials say that increasing operational efficiencies and reducing costs during this challenging time in the Healthcare industry makes the cutbacks necessary.

However, they say most of the positions to be cut will not involve patient care delivery.

NWTHS will be offering transitional help to those affected by offering some of them to other currently open positions or providing eligible employees with a separation package
