GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Prisma Health announced Thursday that the company will be eliminating hundreds of positions.

The company said 327 positions will be cut from administrative, corporate and clinical areas across all campuses.

According to the release, 527 positions will be eliminated in total. The company has eliminated 200 positions through attrition, vacancies and consolidation since October 1.

The 327 team members will be notified Thursday about the changes.

According to the release, Prisma Health will be providing affected employees with severance pay and outplacement services. They will also have the opportunity to apply for open positions within the company.

In addition to cutting positions, the company will be phasing out Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital’s 15-bed Subacute Unit in March and the Children’s Residential Program in Greenville in April.
