UPMC ‘dissing’ nurses

For weeks now, we have seen ads regarding UPMC taking over Altoona Regional Hospital.

Well, in a blink of an eye, UPMC had its name everywhere and on the buildings. These charming ads, showing smiling faces, indicating joy to be in Altoona.

Now, the nurses who have staffed the hospital for years had to go strike in order to get the recognition and compensation they deserve. And UPMC disses this community by not recognizing the hard work these fine professionals do.

This is not a good start for UPMC.

There is no joy now. Shame on UPMC for disrespecting these fine professionals.
