Hospital Caregivers Unveil Billboards Calling for Improved Patient Care, Quality Jobs at Community Medical Centers
Date:3/10/2008

FRESNO, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Caregivers at Community Medical Centers are publicly expressing their desire to form a union in a very big way. Today they unveiled a pair of billboards flanking the Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.

Featuring five members of the CMC Union Organizing Committee from three different facilities within the hospital system, the billboards read, "Caregivers Uniting at Community Medical Centers for Patient Care and Quality Jobs."

Healthcare workers at CMC seek to form a union in order to better advocate for improved patient care at their hospital. Caregivers feel they can achieve better care for patients by joining a union with SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West. Through the union, workers will be able to partner with hospital management and have a voice on the job, in addition to seeking fair wages and benefits to help maintain a skilled workforce.

"We need a voice in making the right decisions for patients in our facilities," said Helen Villa, a Licensed Vocational Nurse in the Emergency Room at Community Regional Medical Center. "We're ready to work in partnership with management as advocates for patient care and quality jobs."

MEDIA AVAILABILITY:

Helen Villa is available upon request from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 10. Please call Kevin Hall at (559) 244-1842 to schedule an interview.

The 150,000-member SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West is the largest hospital and healthcare union in the western United States and represents every type of healthcare worker, including nurses, professional, technical and service classifications. Our mission is to achieve high-quality healthcare for all.
