Topics regarding layoffs at Kaiser Permanente
Northwest Healthplan ignoring bargaining agreement at KSMC. Jobs being eliminated and work is being done by OFNHP nurses. SEIU sitting on their hands and nothing is being done about it. Cease and desist filed but ignored by Healthplan.
With the absurdity of decisions being made, is there any other explanation? There are several conglomerates right now buying up established healthcare companies on a regular basis. None of this makes sense because it doesn't have to, it just needs to... read more
My position is being eliminated effective April 16th. Most people in my department got one. No more info than that and the expectation that I'll remain courteous and professional in the meantime. Kaiser Colorado.
After everything that has happened with Kaiser in Colorado, numerous cuts, disrespect, etc. I am hearing now rumors that they are getting ready for another round of cuts. Please! Keep in mind this is just a rumor I heard from multiple people in the... read more
The senior leaders of Kaiser Permanente are liars. They promised integrity, respect, honesty and transparency. They said job cuts would not be made lightly and that members would continue to have quality care and service. How dare they lie to their... read more
Not 100% sure of the truth on this one, but rumor has it there was a board meeting last night to determine the status of Kaiser MD's in Colorado region. Rumor has it 7-15 MDs are set to be let go. Anyone else have any more info on this?
At the beach there's always another wave coming. That's right!!!!!! A third wave is coming - we all know it and the rumored date is out there. Happy Valentine's Day with Love from KPCO.
Almost 200 Kaiser employees have been notified about layoffs within the last week. https://www.9news.com/article/news/local/kaiser-announces-new-round-of-layoffs/73-44b6d7ca-7cdf-4f6b-bc4b-44df2ffe2a37... read more
So much for transparency. 200 More gone without a peep from leadership. Reported on by Colorado Public Radio. This is in addition to the 200 chopped in the Fall. Solely amputation IS NOT transformation. There will be just a torso if they are not... read more
Aftrer almost 100% turnover at the executive level (300% for the Sales and Marketing VP of late) KPCO is becoming a white male dominant organization once again. A great and disappointing step BACKWARDS.
So far all they have done is CUT and patted themselves on the back for it. Calling it "Transformation". 'ell they ain't tranforming nuthin'. They are just lettin' the hatchet man swing!
I agree that Kaiser Hiring Policy needs to be revisited because they hire people with no knowledge whatsoever. The hiring policy should be changed and strict policies should be applied. Laboratory is full of people who do not know what they are... read more
The Supervisor has no knowledge as a Med Tech. She does not know ABC of being a Tech. Not sure how they hire people?? She should be in IT rather than Lab.. Kaiser hiring policy needs to revisited!
The Lab has unqualified, inefficient people. The management discriminates within its employees. The wastage is huge, Supervisor has no clue how to save and then they lay-off people. First they hire unnecessary staff and then they lay-off- what was... read more
WE SHOULD AS A TEAM SHOULD REPORT TO MR BERNARD TYSON CEO OF KAISER PERMANENTE ABOUT THE MISMANAGEMENT IN THE LABORATORY DEPARTMENT IN GEORGIA. SOME PEOPLE ALREADY NOTIFIED TO MR BERNARD TYSON . HOPEFULLY HE WILL RESOLVE ALL THE ISSUES SOON.
Southern California is taking over all mail order business, so Colorado will be affected. Layoffs may happen in April and May 2019 but they are telling us that we are ‘safe’ and that they will be able to find positions for us somewhere else. Now... read more
Layoffs in the GA Region have started yesterday, it’s my understanding that all location got affected and that no department/location got to keep all the nurses we currently have on payroll. My wife got affected, I am an EMT working at a non-related... read more
Kaiser lures senior nurses at high-end pay into lucrative paying new positions so they can then eliminate the position and cut long term nurses. Very unethical... Upper management still gets yearly bonus of $10K or more while letting hundreds of... read more
Management please open your eyes, lab is Over staffed. Kaiser already loose 30,000 people,please look into the matter as soon as possible. I am really scared that kaiser will be out off buisness on georgia. Make some changes in the management... read more
Please layoff some people in the lab asap because the management at townpark lab wrongly supporting their favorite people. If they are not take immediate action,its gonna be bad for kaiser Permanente. For God sake please let some people go as soon as... read more
Things are not over and Lab Staff will have another employment evaluation in February, potential layoffs in March.
You can believe me or not but here is the truth - there are major layoffs in Georgia. I was told that my position is being eliminated (I am a Registered Nurse) - I heard that 500 others will be eliminated, most of them nurses. People are in shock, I... read more
We know about Colorado and Georgia. Any other areas affected so far by these layoffs?
Kaiser Georgia is reducing the number of front staff and admin workers. Three positions have been combined into one and more kiosks have been placed In facilities. Nurses have been laid off .. trying to get information from management is like pulling... read more
If it's program office related position, such as IT, layoffs will generally start in California as that is a bigger bang for the buck. Used to be four tiers of pay for Program Office (National employees) , however that may have changed with the last... read more
Cutting health care staff now. Eliminating facilities causing longer drives for those who are most medically vulnerable. Behavioural Health losing positions - this after Kaiser has been repeatedly criticized for the inadequacy of its Behavioural... read more
I know KP rarely lays people off but I am researching if you ever had cuts in Georgia, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. Frankly, I cannot locate any online sources confirming or denying this and I was hoping if someone can chime in with locations and... read more
The Colorado messaging is carrying more and more of a dark undertone. Look for more "sacrifice" to come. And while maybe not lies, we are certainly not hearing truth from leadership.
So, in spite of all the losses, the Colorado Med Group just handed out a bigger bonus than they have distributed in the 4 previous years! How does that align with the story? How does that even make sense? Veyr sorry for those laid off in light of... read more
I've been hearing about Kaiser Colorado's mail order closing. What happened to all the staff RPhs at the facility? Are they being reassigned to other positions in the region based on seniority, or were the staff RPhs at mail order just laid off?
More layoffs will follow. Evergreen mountain medical office closing. Central Pharmacy Mail order being outsourced. They claim it's about efficiencies - but it's really about salaries. They are looking for every salary to cut they possibly can. Watch... read more
Severe string tightening. Travel ban through all of 2019. Medical staff not being allowed to travel to important quality and training meetings unless they pay out of their own pocket. How does that meet the mission of quality health care? Look for... read more
I know many people are saying we're looking at more layoffs, but from what I can see so far, nothing new happened this week. I'm thinking if they've decided to have layoffs, they wouldn't spread it out over several weeks, but have it done as soon as... read more
Kaiser Colorado. Gross mismanagement, 65 million dollars in losses over the last three years and much more to come. Now we see severely restricted formularies, denials of diagnostic tests and referrals to members, and massive layoffs of great hard... read more
Yes, they happened. But the org was/is in need of restructuring and streamlining and some—but not all—of the people cut really weren’t high performers. Nonprofit Healthcare is a tough business. Best of luck to the people let go.
Yes. Massive layoffs yesterday with threats to axed employees to keep their mouths shut. Fat cats reaping the benefits at the expense of the masses. This. From what I understand, so far around 200 people have been shown the door, but more will soon... read more
If you are an employee of or if you are insured by Kaiser Colorado, start looking now. Open enrollment is on. With its corrupt management, Kaiser Colorado is feeding senior execs while losing tens of millions of dollars per year. Now they are firing... read more
Colorado is many millions of dollars in the hole. They should look at their BoD. Kathy Lancaster warned Bernard to not sign up too many members as utilization rates would rise above infrastructure. Bernard put KP's eggs all into the Obamacare ACA... read more
Just wondering if anybody has any info on possible layoffs at Kaiser Permanente here? There's been a lot of whispering lately and now that we know there's going to be another major investment, I'm scared that it will be paid for in jobs. Any info... read more
