BATON ROUGE - Eighty employees will lose their jobs over the next few months, healthcare company Magellan Health, reported to state employment watchdogs Tuesday.

The layoffs are far-reaching, and include rank and file workers and people in upper-management roles. Among those being terminated are a vice president/chief operations officer and assistants along with case workers and medical specialists.

Magellan specializes in behavioral healthcare. Offices in Baton Rouge are located in Perkins Rowe.

The company said a contract loss required the downsize. The layoffs are a large portion of the workforce at the Louisiana site but some employees will remain.

The other companies alerting the Louisiana Workforce Commission about impending layoffs this week were Hammond-based Garden City Group, Alcoa in Lake Charles and Hercules Offshore.
