National Nurses Movement Applauds Loudon County Supervisors for Rejecting HCA's Broadlands Proposal
Date:2/4/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- "Patients, nurses, and the Broadlands neighborhood alike won when HCA's application to move into Ashburn was denied," said Kathy McGregor, RN, an organizer with the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, which represents thousands of HCA RNs at hospitals across the country.

"HCA has a long and unfortunate history of cutting corners on patient care in the name of profits, and of shortchanging the communities it is located in. At HCA facilities across the country, we're seeing patient safety violations, cutbacks in care, and nurses overburdened with unacceptable working conditions. The vote today was clearly in Loudon County's best interest."
