Centra is shutting down its daycare program.


Centra Health is closing its child care center in Lynchburg on October 1.

The child care center was a service available to employees. According to company spokesperson Diane Riley, out of the 6,000 Centra employees only around 30 were using the child care center.

The closure will affect 14 employees. Centra is working to find jobs within the company for the affected employees.
