Humana at Home, doing business as SeniorBridge, has filed with the state to close sites in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, in Westchester and on Long Island and lay off 1,005 workers.
According to the filing which is dated earlier this month, the home care business’s New York locations will close on Jan. 27 and employees will be laid off on March 6. SeniorBridge cited economic reasons for the layoffs.
According to its website, SeniorBridge is permanently closing all locations. Sites in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas and Virginia will close by Dec. 31. Patients in New York, however, will retain their care teams through Jan. 13.
SeniorBridge, which delivers home care to older patients, was founded in 2000. Humana acquired the company back in 2012 to expand its care management capabilities to include in-home care management and services for seniors. SeniorBridge patients receive personalized plans from their care managers, including private duty nursing, personal home care and companion care.
New York SeniorBridge sites are in Midtown, Kew Gardens, Downtown Brooklyn, Mineola, Medford, Riverhead and White Plains.
Crain’s could not connect to the SeniorBridge corporate or local offices. This is a developing story and details will be added as they are confirmed.
Humana first announced a plan to restructure its operations next year in July. The changes aim to increase enrollment and expand services it sells to other insurers. The insurer, which is based in ouisville, K.Y., is one of the largest in the nation and brought in $83 billion in revenue in 2021.
