Rally for Respect and Quality Patient Care at Woodhull Hospital
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 at 12:00 PM
Doctors Council SEIU is the union that represents the attending physicians and dentists who work in HHC, the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC), which is the public hospital system for all New Yorkers. These doctors are advocating for a greater voice in quality patient care. As front line doctors who take care of the patients in our communities, they want to make sure that everyone has timely access to care in a facility or hospital with safe staffing. NYU and HHC have been non-responsive to this.
Doctors' Council members have gone years without a new contract. NYU, which employs the doctors of Woodhull Hospital, and HHC which runs it, have also delayed and been non-responsive in bargaining. The time has come for doctors to have a greater voice in quality care for our communities and to achieve a new contract now.
