Lenox Hill Hospital
, an institution with more than a century of history, is staffed by the great nurses of the New York Professional Nurses Union
(NYPNU). After Lenox Hill was taken over by North Shore - Long Island Jewish Health System
NYPNU has fought to keep nursing at the stellar standard which its community deserves. As the old nursing contract is nearly up, NS-LIJ has now threatened to undo years of hard won clinical excellence simply for the sake of boosting their already profitable bottom line.
nurses have decided to confront the "Money Uber Alles" bosses of NS-LIJ, and will strike if they have to in order to protect their patients and their own nursing professionalism.
Please support these valiant nurses in their struggle to maintain nursing excellence!
Please take two minutes and listen to these fine passionate nurses speak for themselves of why they love what they do:
