The cost of Temple Hospital replacements

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 9, 2010

On its Web site, California-based Health Source Global Staffing put out a bid for help at Temple University Hospital, where 1,500 nurses and allied health professionals have been on strike since March 31. A flashing banner on the home page promises up to $10,000 a week for nurses. At the rate Philadelphia-based Temple is spending, it could fund four years of raises, at 3% per year, by the middle of next week, if the strike persists, said Bill Cruice, executive director of the union, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Staffing. The tab for those raises would be $9 million, he claimed. But hospital administrators calculate the costs differently, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
