Nurses at Hahnemann, St. Christopher’s reach tentative contracts with Tenet

By Jane M. Von Bergen

– The union representing registered nurses at Hahnemann University Hospital, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, and St. Christopher’s Pediatric Outpatient Clinic announced Sunday that it had reached tentative agreements on first contracts with Tenet Healthcare Corp., the Dallas-based for-profit chain that operates the hospitals.

Hahnemann’s 940 nurses are scheduled to vote on the tentative agreement Monday.

Voting by the 400 nurses at St. Christopher’s Hospital and the 30 nurses at the outpatient clinic is set for Wednesday.

In January, the nurses voted to join the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP).

Contract details will be available after the ratification votes, the union said.

Continuing are contract talks at Delaware County Memorial Hospital, where the union represents nurses and clinical employees, and Einstein Medical Center, where the union represents nurses.

Nurses and staff at those hospitals also voted to join PASNAP this year.
