Our small, rural hospital had 30-some layoffs last week which included our courtesy transportation for patients within a 30-mile radius. We are now on a volunteer basis to provide this service. Pray that the the Lord sees our need and our patient’s need for this service and will send us good volunteers to provide it.
If our patients are unable to come to the dr when they need to, our numbers and budget and ultimately more jobs will suffer. Additionally, our patient’s health will suffer leading to more serious treatments needed by a provider who is able to afford less and less to provide for these patient’s care.
Ask that the Good Lord lay it on people’s hearts to reach out at this time to provide for one another. Where we are unemployed or underemployed and we have a surplus of time to give, may the Lord give us the gerosity to give where it’s needed.
Thank you all.
