Dr. Lloyd Sederer visits Gibson’s

Dr. Lloyd Sederer, a Concord author, visits Gibson’s Bookstore to share the inspiring true story of how a small group of dedicated leaders achieved radical and relentless change to save McLean, Harvard’s historic psychiatric hospital from for-profit changes. Caught in the Crosshairs of American Healthcare shows readers that, with grit, brains, and support, we can still change our world. Sederer recounts the unfettered story of how McLean survived impending closure or sale to once again prosper and regain its international stature as the hospital where you would want a loved one to be treated for a psychiatric or substance use disorder. Only growth and innovation can reverse an institutional fiscal crisis. Dr. Sederer describes how, over six years of hemorrhaging money, McLean eluded the now pervasive corporatization of American healthcare and was clinically and financially rebuilt despite the odds, all while serving with integrity and soul more patients than ever before. Mark your calendars for this Wednesday, Jan. 24, event, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Gibson’s Bookstore, 45 S. Main St., Concord. No registration is required.
