Is the Mclean County Health Department Industry on the Verge of Collapse?


I am all for a government that supports its citizens. But I find it hard to believe that the Mclean County Health Department is on the verge of collapse.

I mean, seriously, how can they be?

We have excellent, highly-trained, and experienced employees and board members who are committed to their jobs and the health of our residents. They take their job very seriously. And they are working diligently to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our residents.

I also have to admit that I find the Mclean County Health Department’s slogan, “We are the health department of our community,” to be somewhat ironic. We know what we mean by “health department” when we talk about the county. But, that kind of slogan just doesn’t do much for me.

In the last few years, the McLean County Health Department has fallen into the same pattern as other county health departments that have faced financial troubles.

They have cut staff, hours, and benefits, which has left many residents without access to basic health care. This has led to an increase in the number of people who have to go to community hospitals and clinics for basic health care needs.

It’s important to note that McLean County stands alone in the state of Mississippi. And is it the only county in the state that does not have a county hospital? This may be more reason why the health department is in the precarious position it is in.

Since when The Mclean County Health Department has been in existence?

The Mclean County Health Department has been in existence since 1858. But recently their funding has been cut and they are trying to make up for it by cutting hours and benefits. This has led to an increase in the number of people who have to go to community hospitals and clinics for basic health care needs.

Since the mid-1980s the Health Department had been operating on a budget that was about 30% of what it needed to be in order to provide a good level of services. Then in 2013, the state legislature passed a bill that cut the funding by over $1.5 million in the county. That was followed by another cut in 2014.

Now, after the cuts, the county is having to cut back on the number of services it provides in order to keep up with the demand. Since there are more people in need of health care, more people need to seek it out. So while the staff and funding levels are being cut, the number of people seeking care is decreasing. As long as that continues, the Mclean County Health Department will be in danger of collapse.

The Mclean County Health Department is the one that provides health care to the county’s citizens. The county is in desperate need of a new health department that focuses on helping the community instead of just the wealthy.

The county has been steadily losing population and services for years. It has one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the state. The county is also in the bottom 5% of counties for the number of people that are uninsured.
