Warn notice issued for Joerns Healthcare

Posted:

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development issued its WARN notice for Joerns Healthcare in Stevens Point.

Back in January, the Portage County company announced it would move out of north central Wisconsin.

The move affects 146 workers.

Joerns healthcare leaders said they would be taking most operations to plants in Texas, Arkansas and Mexico.

City officials say Joerns was offered millions of dollars worth of incentives to stay.

But that didn't work.

The Joerns CEO said the company is moving because customers want lower costs.

But Stevens Point mayor Andrew Halverson says it'll cost workers the most.
