Caritas Christi, 1199SEIU, Area Trades Council to Announce Historic New Accord to Improve Health Care for Community, Patients, Health Workers
Date:1/27/2009

oward a new era of unity, it is only fitting that we all come together to tackle the enormous and complex issue of providing the highest quality care in a fiscally responsible manner. This accord again reflects that the Caritas family of hospitals are not just in communities, but rather are a part of communities; it is only with all segments of a community working together that we will achieve the level of cost efficient quality care Massachusetts deserves," said Caritas Christi CEO and President Ralph de la Torre.

"We are thrilled that the new leadership of Caritas has affirmed the right of hospital workers to make the decision for ourselves on whether to join together as a union," said St. Elizabeth's Medical Center employee Sonia Marshall. "As Caritas employees, we believe in the mission of our hospitals, and this decision reaffirms that our labor and our voice are valued and respected. In the end, that's what's best for patients, too."

"The urgency of our national healthcare crisis requires everyone - employers, patients, caregivers, and elected leaders - to come together to build bold, enduring solutions to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, quality-driven healthcare," said Dennis Rivera, Chairman of SEIU Healthcare. "Today, Caritas Christi is joining a national movement in which caregivers have a voice in determining not only the delivery of care to their patients, but the future of healthcare. Working together, we can create a healthcare system that works better for everyone - both the patients receiving care, and the workers who provide it."
