Duluth-based Essentia Health cuts 500 employees as revenue dries up


March 31, 2020

Duluth-based Essentia provides services in more than 60 cities.

DULUTH – Essentia Health has placed 500 employees on unpaid leave as it runs low on funds before an expected crush of COVID-19 cases.

"Like other health care organizations around the country, we are projecting a 20-40% decrease in revenue due to pandemic-related declines in patient volumes," the Duluth-based health system said in a news release Monday evening. "Staffing levels will continually be evaluated and adjusted as needs evolve."
