Novant Health lays off 81 IT workers in Winston-Salem

Novant Health will layoff 81 information technology workers in Winston-Salem as part of changes announced last year with the Charlotte-based company.

The layoffs are expected to be permanent and occur on Aug. 25, according to a notice filed with the state Department of Commerce. Novant Health announced in 2023 it would outsource some of its IT work.

Some of its digital work is being shifted to Deloitte Digital, according to a statement released by Novant Health. Other Novant IT workers were laid off earlier due to the changes.

“Fewer than 300 team members, or less than 0.8% of the nearly 40,000 positions across our health system, are impacted by this change,” according to the statement. “Interested team members may have the opportunity to join our external partners or transition to roles within Novant Health.”

For those not taking new roles, Novant will be “extending resources to ease the transition,” according to the statement.
