HealthPartners Furloughs 2,600 Employees


BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Another prominent health care provider is furloughing 2,600 employees as the coronavirus cuts into revenue.

HealthPartners, the second-largest nonprofit group in the state, operates seven hospitals including Hutchinson Health, dozens of clinics, and a health insurance business.

COVID-19 has eliminated elective surgeries and created some financial challenges for health care groups.

Earlier this month, Minnesota’s largest nonprofit group, the Mayo Clinic, announced pay cuts for more than 20,000 workers.

The Star Tribune reports HealthPartners employs about 26,000 people with revenue of $7.2 billion in 2019.
