Hospitals

Nearly every classification of healthcare worker can be found in our hospitals — including nurses of all categories, professional and technical employees, home care workers, and clerical and service workers. Even as the healthcare industry restructures itself toward increased emphasis on ambulatory care, our hospitals remain the largest and most vital centers of care delivery. 1199SEIU’s nearly 100,000 hospital workers throughout New York, Massachusetts, Washington, DC, Maryland and Florida have raised wages, health benefits, pensions and educational opportunities for hospital workers across the Atlantic seaboard, and provide hospital workers a powerful and critical voice on the job. In doing so, hospital workers have become caregivers at the frontlines in many of the country’s elite academic medical centers and in community healthcare settings for underserved patient populations.
