The hospital’s finances continue to be a problem, and the hospital is seven months behind in remitting Union dues to SEIU 121RN. Uncertainties in Federal funding of indigent care is keeping the hospital in flux.

Our contract is now effective through Aug. 31, 2017.

Union Contract Extended to Aug 31

Pacifica Hospital of the Valley continues in a state of financial instability. In the past year and a half, the hospital has been late in remitting Union dues collected from RN paychecks to SEIU 121RN, as well as late paying the premiums for our dental, vision and life insurance plans. Despite our Union’s best efforts, it has been a challenge to understand the full extent of Pacifica’s financial issues.
