BAKERSFIELD - Kern County Supervisors voted Tuesday to issue dozens of layoff notices.
Kern Medical Center administration recommended 51 workers be laid off, with more than 100 other open positions deleted.
CEO Russell Judd asked the Board of Supervisors to close the home health care and outpatient physical therapy divisions as well.
The layoffs will save KMC about $5.7 million annually, Judd said.
Supervisors are expected to approve Judd's recommendations.
The layoffs will start in 6 to 8 weeks. The workers union will be able to challenge.
There are about 1,400 employees at KMC.
