RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Renown Health has announced it has eliminated 60 management and administrative roles as a part of "re-structure to achieve the goals of a new 3-year strategic plan. This reduction represents less than 1% of Renown’s total workforce of 7,100 people."

According to a release, "No direct patient care positions were eliminated in the restructure. Impacted employees have full access to a policy which provides severance pay and outplacement job services. Eighteen employees impacted were offered new positions of critical need within the organization."

"We take any decision to end any person's employment very seriously, and we regret the necessity of it. We will do everything possible to help those affected find new opportunities, either within or outside Renown Health,” says Michelle Sanchez-Bickley, Chief Human Resources Officer. “Reductions were made in management as well as frontline team members, prioritizing non-clinical areas for reductions and most importantly, preserving the quality and safety of the care we provide.”

Renown Health says it is "undertaking a multifaceted effort as part of a new strategic plan to make care more accessible and affordable by continuing to improve quality, increase efficiency and expand convenient services."
