McKesson Corporation Eliminates 174 Alpharetta Jobs


12/13/2011 8:37:17 AM

McKesson Corp. cut 174 jobs at its Alpharetta, Ga., campus, according to documents filed with the Georgia Department of Labor.

The San Francisco-based health-care services and information technology company’s job cuts took effect Dec. 8 and are in its McKesson Provider Technologies unit.

David A. Souerwine, president of McKesson Provider Technologies, told Atlanta Business Chronicle the cuts stem from the end of an enterprise revenue management software project.

“We made the strategic decision to meet the needs of our customers on a different platform, so there was no continuing need for the people in that project,” Souerwine said.

However, Souerwine also noted McKesson has more openings across its technology business than the number of people cut. The recently cut have been offered the opportunity to attend a redeployment fair that starts Tuesday and will be given help with updating resumes and brushing up on their interview skills. Souerwine said the company is trying to redeploy as many employees as it can.

McKesson Provider Technologies has about 7,000 employees. McKesson Corp. employs 1,500 in Alpharetta and 3,700 across Georgia.

McKesson’s (NYSE: MCK) second-quarter earnings fell 9 percent to $1.18 a share after $118 million in litigation costs. Its revenue for the period jumped 10 percent to $30.2 billion.
