St. Joseph Hospital Issues Statement On Informational Picket

In the aftermath of nurses who work for St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka holding an informational picket Tuesday, hospital officials have issued a statement. It reads, “While the unions continue an unwarranted negative attack campaign against our hospitals, the committed caregivers who care for our community will continue to remain focused and steadfast in their mission and not allow this disruption to negatively affect our patients, their families, or our caregivers.” Those who protested say recent layoffs have put staffing at unsafe levels.
