West Penn Allegheny Health System today laid off 262 employees system wide and eliminated another 200 vacant positions.
Spokesman Dan Laurent said the reductions "span every level of the workforce, but relatively few are related to direct patient care."
He described the action as "right-sizing the organization based on the patient volume we currently have."
Mr. Laurent said no other "significant" reductions are planned for now.
Following today's layoffs, the West Penn Allegheny Health System will have 10,300 employees while the Allegheny Health Network as a whole employs nearly 17,000.
Layoffs did not touch the two other Allegheny Health hospitals, Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Jefferson Hills and St. Vincent Hospital in Erie.
Earlier this week, WPAHS eliminated some executive leadership positions, including that of Ned Labaucher, CEO of Allegheny Valley Hospital and executive vice president overseeing Allegheny Valley and Forbes Regional.
