Deerfield, Illinois-based Baxter International, Fortune 500 healthcare company, has announced that it will be laying off 131 workers in its Medina, New York facility.
It will be transitioning its repair and maintenance operations for its Spectrum infusion pump to another Baxter facility in Illinois. The company will continue to manufacture its Spectrum infusion pump at the Medina facility.
According to a company spokesperson, the medical device company’s decision was based on a routine operational review. In corporate-speak, “The decision follows an analysis of how best to meet patient needs and ensure timely supply for customers. We expect to complete this transition in the first quarter of 2019. In the meantime, we recognize that these decisions are difficult for individuals who are impacted.”
