The Work We Do: Brookdale Medical Center's Registered Nurses

June 10, 2019

1199SEIU represents over 700 Registered Nurses at Brooklyn’s Brookdale Medical Center and its associated longterm care facility, the Shulman and Schachne Institute.

Brookdale nurses established themselves as among the most stalwart voices for nurses and patients with their successful 1977 organizing drive and strike. The institution remains one of New York City’s busiest safety net hospitals. As they have always done, Brookdale nurses provide compassionate, excellent care for some of the city’s poorest and sickest residents.
