Nationwide Better Health to lay off 96 in Hunt Valley

A health-management company is closing a Hunt Valley facility and laying off nearly 100 employees over the next three months, state regulators said Thursday.

Nationwide Better Health, a division of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. that is being partly sold off and partly closed down, warned the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation that 96 workers would be laid off in three waves starting Aug. 29 and ending Oct. 28.

A Nationwide Mutual spokeswoman said employees at the Hunt Valley location work in the fields of health management and medical utilization management. Those layoffs are part of an approximately 300-job cut expected — with most layoffs in Ohio — as a result of Nationwide's sale of one piece of Nationwide Better Health and its shutdown of the rest.
