MEDINA – Several employees at Baxter Healthcare in Medina have told Orleans Hub the company announced this afternoon that the service department would be eliminated in Medina along with more than 100 jobs.

Baxter will continue to produce manufacture smart infusion pumps in Medina for the medical field.

Baxter became a part-owner of the SIGMA Spectrum Infusion pump in 2009, and in 2012 became the full owner. Baxter is one of the largest employers in Orleans County with about 600 workers at the Olde Pickle Factory on Park Avenue.

The company told employees some workers would be laid off as soon as possible while others in the service department would keep their positions in Medina for up to nine months.

The service department work is moving to another Baxter location out of state. The employees were notified of the layoffs in Medina during a meeting at about 3 p.m. today.
