CRISFIELD, Md. - The McCready Foundation in Crisfield announced today that they've had to lay off 18 people.
The Foundation says they released two employees from their nursing home, and the remaining 16 from the hospital facility. The reason for the layoffs is strictly financial.
Patient volume has dropped 55% in the past three years, and the restructuring should make the staff to patient ratio more effective. The McCready Foundation says they're trying to do the right thing so they can continue taking care of present and future patients.
