After Drop In Revenue, McCready Foundation Begins Layoffs

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - The McCready Foundation is beginning to layoff some of their staff.

In several statements released to 47 ABC, Joy Strand, CEO of the McCready Foundation, says they cannot not cite the exact number, but most of the changes are job consolidations or reductions in hours.

"Only a few positions are direct patient care and those duties have been absorbed by other clinical staff so no patient care service will be affected," says Strand. "Other impacted positions are in non-direct care positions."

The changes reportedly come after experiencing a reduction in revenue reimbursement, in part due to declining volume.  Strand says a lot of different factors affect these declining numbers, but without patients to care for, they are unable to pay for extra staff.

She feels her biggest concern is for McCready to remain flexible and adaptable to the changing healthcare environment so that they can healthcare services in Somerset County for the next generations. 

"We need the community to embrace and support us and choose us for their healthcare," says Strand.
