  1. The articles states: “By consolidating the centers, which will absorb the current staff and patients, the city cannot expect to provide the same level of service.”

    Although the present clinic consolidation plan absorbs consumers from 4 clinics into three mental health centers it does not consolidate all of the staff from the 4 clinics. The staffing matrix indicates 15 of 33 staff (from the 4 clinics scheduled for closure) are slated to go to other mental health centers. So, consumers of consolidated centers will continue to be short changed.
