MILWAUKEE (AP) -- GE Healthcare plans to layoff 179 employees at its GE Healthcare Monitoring Solutions plant in Milwaukee.

In a letter dated Wednesday to the state Department of Workforce Development, the company said layoffs will begin around June 9 and continue through December 31.

GE Healthcare is the medical systems and bioscience division of the General Electric Co.

A message left for company spokesman Corey Miller was not immediately returned Thursday evening.
