Eleven local doctors are joining in the effort to persuade Alta Vista Regional Hospital to negotiate with a union representing most of the hospital’s employees.
The doctors were among 180 residents who signed a recent petition encouraging the hospital to recognize the workers, who are represented by District 1199 of the National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees. Five nurses and other health-care professionals also signed.
The petition was sent to Wayne Smith, chairman and CEO of Community Health Systems, Alta Vista’s parent company.
