National nurse union joins fight against Virginia hospital
Washington Post, May 27, 2008
The National Nurses Organizing Committee has joined forces with Concerned Citizens of Broadlands in fighting the HCA proposal to construct the proposed Broadlands Regional Medical Center in Virginia. The Concerned Citizens of Broadlands and the nurses union said they would prefer to see a hospital built in another location, where it would have less impact on residents. The union has also formed the HCA RN Network to protect HCA nurses from what representatives said are poor working conditions.
