“Our exemplary nurses are a valued and crucial part of our world class healthcare team. We believe this generous package will help us continue to retain and recruit excellent nurses. We look forward to working with our nursing community as we continue our efforts to bring top-ranked healthcare to our patients and communities across the state and beyond.”

Nancy May, DNP, RN. AMB-BC, NEA-BC, Chief Nurse Executive

The mediated competitive agreement reflects the collaborative commitment and shared interest in recognizing the value of the nursing workforce and their dedication to exemplary patient care. Generous financial compensation over four years including lump sum bonuses, improved processes for managing industry-leading staffing levels, and improved scheduling to eliminate/reduce mandatory overtime provide a foundation for continued growth and nurse retention.

“As we move towards the next provisions in the new contract, I am optimistic that we will grow stronger as a nursing community and continue to be a destination for practice as we rebuild our workforce.” ~Nancy
