University of Pittsburgh Medical Center laying off 500

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, October 24, 2008

About 500 University of Pittsburgh Medical Center employees are being laid off as part of the health system's ongoing cost savings initiatives. The layoffs are "almost entirely non-clinical, administrative and managerial positions" and are occurring systemwide, said a UPMC spokesman. UPMC employs about 50,000 workers and, despite the layoffs, it expects to hire more than 3,000 new employees this year, he added.
