Healthcare workers join panel after key ground rules established

OAKLAND, Calif., March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- United Healthcare Workers-West, representing 1,200 caregivers employed by Sutter Health's California Pacific Medical Center and St. Luke's Hospital in San Francisco, has joined the Blue Ribbon Panel formed to develop a plan for the future of St. Luke's.

UHW agreed to participate in the panel after its co-chairs, with the agreement of city leaders and Sutter CPMC, established a set of ground rules to guarantee an open and accountable process.

-- a requirement that all meetings be public and adequately noticed, with a regular opportunity for public comment and a session devoted to direct public testimony before the panel;

-- an agreement that the panel's plan will be submitted for consideration to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and city administration;

-- the addition of a panel participant to be appointed by St. Luke's home district supervisor and longtime healthcare advocate Tom Ammiano;

-- maintenance of all current services at St. Luke's and a guarantee of no further staff reductions until the panel process is complete.

In addition, Sutter CPMC agreed to replace much of the capacity recently lost with the closure of the 10th floor Medical Surgical Unit at St. Luke's.
