Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital execs get healthy pensions
Readers of The Salinas Californian and a union representative for workers at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital have had a lot to say about retirement pension payouts for five departing hospital vice presidents that in two cases topped $1 million. A hospital spokeswoman defended the supplemental payouts as coming out of a prior era of financial success and noted that they were discontinued in December by the hospital's board. This did little to mollify National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) Vice President John Borsos. "They should have never started" paying the supplemental pension benefits, Borsos said.
