Mary Tobin at the Public Budget Hearing Tuesday, March 5 at 4 p.m.
Mary Tobin, administrator for Laurel Ridge Health Care Center spoke with Senator Osten, Representative Walker, and the members of the Appropriations Committee at the Public Budget Hearing Tuesday, March 5 at 4 p.m.
Tobin urges these elected leaders to provide additional Medicaid funding. Medicaid funding has not been changed in the state budget for over twelve years now. Without Medicaid help, retaining and recruiting staff to care for the population in Laurel Ridge will become extremely difficult. Laurel Ridge is one of Western CT Health and Network’s preferred providers which needs funding to become a priority to help staff deliver the care every patient deserves.
