RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE STAFFING CHANGES IN THE ADULT HEALTH, SPARROW AND ST. LAWRENCE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS
WHEREAS, the Administrators of the community health centers are encouraged to continually evaluate staffing needs and to identify opportunities to reduce costs and improve efficiency; and

WHEREAS, the proposed adjustments can be implemented, taking advantage of currently vacant positions; and
WHEREAS, the Primary Care Director has advised the Health Officer that it is essential that the community health center network is a relatively high cost operation and that it is necessary to find opportunities to lower the cost of a medical visit to a more acceptable range, comparing Ingham County cost with the cost of operating similar health centers in Michigan and elsewhere; and
