Hospitals and healthcare networks all across the country are making the hard decision to downsize and let go of staff in direct response to the financial hardship that COVID-19 has caused.
This article from Becker’s Hospital Review is both sad and sobering, but it’s also the real pulse of what we are facing nationwide.
Administrators and key-decision makers now have to navigate these challenges, making hard/strategic decisions to keep their facilities open and in the black. Capital budgets are likely suspended for the foreseeable future, especially in smaller (revenue) specialties like ophthalmology.
Upgrading equipment is likely not an option right now.
Getting started in a new specialty is likely not an option either due to large upfront costs.
We have some good news for you!
