MSLCC is making some important changes to best serve our residents and employees. Starting September 9, we will reduce the bed capacity in the North Central unit by 8 beds; bringing its new total to 30. The demand in our community has softened over the past year. This will allow us to right size our operation, maximizing our staffing and efficiency. Meeting the needs of all our residents remains our top priority. Going forward, we will monitor the demand for long term care beds in our community. Recent market analysis still shows that demand is and will increase in the coming years. We will reserve the ability to bring the beds back online when the demand grows. We exist to serve our community and our mission of Enriching Lives. This strategy will assure we are able to serve our community and our residents well now and into the future.
