Kaiser Permanente to cut more than 1,800 jobs in California
California-based healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente said it would eliminate more than 1,800 positions as it struggles with declining membership, uncertain healthcare reform, and shriveling Medicare reimbursement rates. Job reductions will occur within the next few months, and many of the purged positions are temporary, on-call, or short-hour. Most Kaiser medical centers in California will be affected.
