Lash Group LLC, a subsidiary of the Pennsylvania-based drug wholesaler AmerisourceBergen, is laying off 202 employees from its Monroeville facility in August, according to a notice sent to the state Department of Labor & Industry.

The layoffs will be effective Aug. 17 and will affect employees at the Lash Group facilities at 4350 Northern Pike.

Lauren Esposito, spokeswoman for AmerisourceBergen, characterized the layoffs as “position impacts and redeployment opportunities,” calling them part of “an effort to evaluate and align company capabilities to meet customer needs.”

Lash Group is a patient support services company that provides an array of patient access and adherence services on behalf of pharmaceutical, biotech and device manufacturers, she said.

“We are currently working to identify positions of interest and work opportunities across the company for these colleagues,” Esposito said. “Any impacted associates will be offered severance benefits, as well as career support services.”

Esposito said there are no plans to close the Monroeville office.

In March, Lash Group announced that it was closing its Rockville, Md., facility, affecting 250 employees.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
