Jobs part of pilot program for company

A pilot program at Cardinal Health’s call center in Radcliff is being discontinued.

The announcement came after running the program for six months at the Radcliff and Sherwood, Arkansas, call centers, said Corey Kerr, director of media relations for the company.

By the end of September, a mix of 45 full- and part-time employees split between the two centers will be affected by the cancellation of the program. Employees will receive at least 30 days notice and are encouraged to apply for other Cardinal Health positions, she said.

The Radcliff operation will lose 22 1/2 of the positions.

Employees who have not found another job by the end of their employment will receive outplacement services and severance packages, Kerr said.

The pilot program is a hybrid delivery model for pharmaceutical chain customers.  

The health care supply distributor is headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, and opened its call center in Radcliff in 2006. More than 400 employees remain at the center.
