EUGENE, Ore. -- PeaceHealth has eliminated about 50 jobs across their locations, and 15 new positions have been created, a PeaceHealth spokesperson said.

The jobs affected were all centralized support services roles, said PeaceHealth spokesperson Jeremy Rush. 

Rush said the changes happened on Wednesday and are a result of streamlining their support services structure. He could not give specific location information about how many jobs were cut in Lane County.

PeaceHealth has facilities in Oregon, Washington and Alaska.

Rush said in line with their values, they are offering comprehensive transitional support consistent with their policies and practices to all impacted caregivers. Caregivers affected by the change can apply for new or open positions.

In July, PeaceHealth eliminated approximately 50 technology support services positions. The changes came after the implementation of PeaceHealth’s electronic health record.  Rush said technology support services were centralized to the shared services center in Vancouver, Washington, to improve efficiency.
