Health Board votes to dissolve ‘home health’ program >

The Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department Board voted last night to dissolve the agency's home health program, effective November 30th.

The unanimous decision came at the recommendation of the health department staff.

The discussion focused on negative talk of late concerning the future of the program. Employees also talked about the cost of needed new software to implement the home care program. That figure was pegged at $15 to $20,000.

Interim-home health Coordinator Jeanie Schneider is resigning her position as interim-director. She had been serving since former Coordinator Mary Cahoe left the agency earlier this month.

Employees questioned whether any new employee would want the job since there had been so much talk of ending the program anyway.
