KCI to lay off 68 employees

Thursday, February 15, 2018

SAN ANTONIO – KCI USA, a subsidiary of Acelity, will lay off 68 workers in May, according to a notice filed with state labor regulators and reported by the San Antonio Express-News. No reason was given for the layoffs, and calls and emails to the company were not immediately returned, according to the newspaper. In 2016, Acelity, formerly Kinetic Concepts, said it was not awarded contracts for negative pressure wound therapy in the Round 2 re-compete of competitive bidding, due to a technicality.
