Oct 2, '06Quote from danh3190This is all I could find about this.I didn't know they sold off Mercy Providence. Who's running it now? What services does it provide?
scroll down to the near bottom of the page and look for 2005.
Oct 2, '06I'm kind of sorry to see Mercy become part of the UPMC system. On the other hand, after I actually become a nurse I'll owe UPMC two years because of the tuition forgiveness program. If Mercy maintains its high quality of care, it would be great to work there!
Feb 9, '08Quote from Shamira AizzaI think the writer meant that the nurses are worse off working for UPMC as in "RUINED" from nurses point of view. I didn't take that post to mean that hospitals bought up by UPMC don't make money. UPMC does not come by it's huge profits by being gentle with it's employees.Just for reference, Mercy Hosp is MILLIONS in debt, and they are the ones who approached UPMC to help rescue them. UPMC did not leverage themselves to 'take over' Mercy.
I'd be interested in hearing which hospitals are worse off since they've aligned with UPMC.
