CLAY COUNTY PRIMARY CARE CENTER INC
Last year finances forced PCS to reduce medical and administrative staff. This funding will assist in retaining/recruiting these and other providers in several ways. First it will allow PCS to pay signing bonuses needed to secure new talent. PCS has had difficulty competing with hospitals and other private groups who offer better compensation packages including signing bonuses. Second it will aid PCS in recruiting experienced medical providers who require malpractice tail coverage. Third it will minimize burdens associated with bringing in new providers, including the gaps in collections caused by lengthy insurance credentialing processes and by new providers taking time to get up to full capacity. With this production, the new providers will more than sustain themselves financially. They also provide justification for the preservation of skilled care managers and other auxiliary staff.
In addition, PCS created a Supply Supervisor position in charge of all purchasing for the organization. The new Supervisor has extensive experience ordering supplies in the Navy. The savings associated with his mass purchasing will more than sustain his salary. PCS also has hired nurse to serve as Outreach Coordinator, and it intends to hire a nurse to serve as an Asthma Educator.
Over the last year, a shortage of medical providers has forced PCS to cut its hours. With the increase in providers, PCS will extend its hours to include more evenings and weekends. The demand for the existing evening shifts suggests the additional hours will result in sufficient revenue to sustain the expansion.
