Sacramento Business Journal

Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, which has hospitals in Berkeley and Oakland, has cut 139 jobs in recent months, but 219 jobs remain on the chopping block, officials confirmed late Thursday.

Earlier this year, the Sutter Health affiliate, led by CEO Chuck Prosper, posted a layoff notice for 358 jobs on the state’s WARN web site, but the California Nurses Association challenged the RN-related layoffs, and that portion of the planned staff reduction remains in limbo, awaiting a decision from an outside arbitrator.
