Biologics, an oncology services company that was acquired earlier this year by a unit of publicly traded McKesson Corp., is laying off 132 employees at its Cary facility.
Biologics notified the state Department of Commerce last week that the layoffs will begin Nov. 21. The employees being laid off include 72 patient benefits specialists, 15 patient care coordinators and a dozen customer service representatives.
Biologics, which manages treatment for patients with cancer and other complex diseases, was acquired in April by McKesson Specialty Health. McKesson officials couldn’t immediately be reached for additional information regarding the layoffs.
When the acquisition was announced in February, Biologics had 365 employees in Cary and the company said it was on track to add 150 new workers this year.
