Yakima Regional’s parent company, HMA, announced a likely buyout by CHS, Community Health Systems. If this buyout is finalized next March it would bring many changes to our hospital that, because we have a union, we will sit at the table and bargain.
What happens to our contract if the deal closes?
We will make sure CHS continues to respect our contract. We have a history of working with CHS and successfully kept our contract in place when CHS bought the hospitals in Spokane. We bargain the effects of the buyout. We will sit down at the table with CHS and bargain over any changes CHS would like to make.
“We all need to stand together so we have the power to make this buyout a positive for our patients and our families.” — Glenda Jensen, PNAc
