Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, part of the Partners HealthCare network, is slashing 35 jobs to cut costs.
The cuts come as the entire Partners network embarks on a three-year initiative to rein in spending and become more efficient.
“The external environment for health care providers and Partners in particular has never been more challenging, and the need to reduce our costs has never been more compelling,” David Storto, president of Spaulding and Partners Continuing Care, said in a statement.
The job cuts amount to less than 1 percent of the organization’s overall workforce of about 4,500. Spaulding runs inpatient and outpatient rehabiliation facilities, including a hospital in Charlestown.
Storto said the job cuts will be focused “in management ranks,” and that several managers have already volunteered to leave their positions. The layoffs are expected to reduce costs by $4.3 million.
Additional job cuts are possible, as Spaulding executives said they’re still looking for another $5 million in savings.
