Drug distributor Cardinal Health, Dublin, OH, says that when it spins off its Clinical and Medical Products businesses later this year it will reduce its global workforce by 800 over six months and eliminate an additional 500 positions through normal attrition and not filling open roles. The distributor also plans to implement cost control measures and reductions in discretionary spending.
The actions are in response to a "delay in hospital capital spending" specifically, and the decline in the global economy generally, according a press release.
Cardinal said back in January that the spending delay is only a "temporary concern," according to an article at WSJ.com.
Cardinal Health, Inc. is a $91 billion global company.
