SAN ANTONIO – KCI USA has alerted state officials that it plans to eliminate 65 jobs at a service center in Charlotte, N.C., according to a local TV station. KCI, an Acelity Company, decided to “substantially reduce” its workforce after analyzing its “business situation and its available options,” according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Letter filed with the North Carolina Department of Commerce. KCI will lay off employees in four phases, starting July 5 and ending Sept. 27, and then close the center, the TV station reports. The bulk of the jobs impacted are in order fulfillment support and management, with additional jobs impacted in billing and collections, customer service and administrative support. More than 30 employees from the center will continue to work remotely from home. KCI says it employs 5,000 people around the world.
