Scripps Health Says It Will Lay Off 69 Marketing/HR Employees

San Diego-based Scripps Health will lay off 69 employees from its human resources and marketing departments this summer, according to the hospital’s president and CEO Chris Van Gorder. The hospital system today confirmed an earlier report that Van Gorder announced the layoffs in a company memo last Tuesday. Scripps Health employs more than 13,000 workers, according to its website, and this marks the first time Scripps has implemented a layoff affecting employees in more than 15 years (since Van Gorder joined the hospital).
