ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Mission Health System says it’s cut 130 jobs, but adds that the layoffs come under a reorganization that will ultimately add more workers.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports (https://avlne.ws/1qOUdXJ) CEO Ron Paulus said the company next year will end up with an increase of 147 jobs to handle growth in outpatient services.

Of the jobs cut, 55 workers retired and 15 got new jobs at the company.

The not-for-profit started reorganizing months ago with the goal of cutting $42 million in costs year-over-year and growing revenue by $10 million. That goal increased by $4.2 million this summer to cover additional staff for mental health services.

Mission operates six hospitals in western North Carolina and ambulatory care offices with about 10,000 employees. The company expects $1.5 billion in gross revenue next year.
