In an interview, Maun-Lemke president and founder Clint Maun talked about the healthcare industry. He thinks the great news is that even in an economic downturn, healthcare is needed and will always be there. Certainly, they (legislators and bureaucrats) could play with reimbursement and other things, but the jobs aren't going to go away or be sent offshore, and the organizations are, for the most part, necessary. In healthcare they tend to fall for the trap of feeling like stepchildren or victims -- that the world is out after them. But good organizations and leaders are looking at this as an opportunity to not only survive, but to grow. On what can a long-term care administrator do to support staff who are possibly feeling intense financial challenges at home, he said one thing you could do is meet with your employees to talk about their economic issues and concerns, and what your own worries are.
