It is an unhealthy day for Caprica as one of our finest mental health institutions is now officially financially struggling.
The Delphi Convalescent Institute, a non-profit organization funded mostly by colony support and private donors, will lose over forty percent of its funding from the former in Quarter Three of this year. The news comes hot on the heels of rumors that Delphi was going to be cutting over twenty-five percent of its in-house staff in the next couple of months.
"These are hard times for our Institute," said Dr. Paul Martin, one of the senior doctors at Delphi. "We are still completely dedicated to seeing to the mental health of all of our patients, both old and new, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that we're going to need a little help in the near future to keep the lights on."
The loss of colony funding comes from across-the-board colony budget cuts, and Dr. Martin says the announcement doesn't come as a surprise.
"We all have to tighten our belts and be more savvy during these times," he says. "I don't blame anyone, and there's no use getting up in arms. We'll just have to come up with a Plan B, and probably a Plan C as well."
The Delphi Convalescent Institute was established in YR 01 and is part of the Caprica Mental Health Association. It currently houses over 120 patients.
