PSL's Liberty Medical to lay off 263 employees

Liberty Medical, a diabetes-supply firm based in Port St. Lucie, informed the state on Thursday that it plans to lay off 263 employees on Aug. 27.

The company, which was once the largest private employer in the city with more than 2,400 employees, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2013.

Liberty also informed the state that it "may be selling substantially all of its assets."

In a letter to the state, Liberty said the layoffs are expected to be permanent. The company says "all affected employees have been notified of their separation dates."

A list of the job titles that will be affected spans all levels of the company, from the president and chief financial officer to housekeepers.
