Seattle hospital cancels pact with doctors

Seattle Times, January 24, 2008
All 20 anesthesiologists who work at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center in Seattle said they were simply looking for fairness when they went to management and asked for more than $2 million. Instead, the hospital responded by canceling their contract--essentially firing them all. If negotiations do not work, the breakup could mean the hospital would have to scramble to find enough specialists, possibly meaning delays in surgeries.
