Athenahealth Lays off 178 employees


Athenahealth, a Watertown health IT business that was taken private in 2019, is cutting its global workforce by less than 3%, eliminating 178 jobs.

Jean Borgman, a spokesperson for the company, wrote in an email on Thursday that Athenahealth is continuously evolving its priorities to align with growth strategy, macroeconomic conditions and customers’ needs.

“We are making some internal changes to better position our organization for its next phase of growth, and as a result, we are reducing our global workforce by less than 3%,” Borgman wrote. “While this represents a small percentage of our total employees, it is difficult to say goodbye to any of our people and we are actively working to support all impacted employees.”
