Oracle discloses Springfield layoffs in state filing

Posted online

Austin, Texas-based technology services provider Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) has informed the state of Missouri of planned layoffs at a CoxHealth facility in Springfield, but the jobs may not be lost.

The Feb. 1 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act filing by Oracle indicates 124 employees were notified Feb. 1 of the layoffs that become effective April 1. They work at 1115 E. Primrose St., a CoxHealth-owned building.

"Client is transitioning the health information technology operations that have been provided by Oracle back to the client," the WARN notice reads. "The Springfield client location is not shutting down, but Oracle’s ITWorks operations at the Springfield client location are shutting down as part of this reduction in force.

"It is our understanding that the client has already made offers of employment to all of the affected employees."

Cary Nabors, manager of public relations for CoxHealth, confirmed via email that the health system is looking to hire the impacted employees.

"CoxHealth has made offers of employment to all affected employees, and given how integrated they are into our system, it will not impact the employees’ day-to-day work," Nabors said. “Oracle decided to make a staffing change that impacted employment of more than 100 staff members in Springfield and Branson.”

CoxHealth late last year announced it was switching to Verona, Wisconsin-based health care software firm Epic Systems Corp. for electronic health records from Oracle, according to past reporting. Nabors said the Oracle WARN notice is unrelated to that change.
