Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center announced this morning that it will eliminate 950 positions by June 30 of next year.
About half the reductions will be achieved by eliminating vacant positions, attrition, retirements as well as by eliminating temporary and contract worker jobs.
About 475 of the 950 positions are currently filled with full-time employees. Those employees account for about 3.5 percent of Wake Forest Baptist's total workforce.
The Winston-Salem medical center laid off 76 workers this week.
