Support Nurses on Strike

After calling the nurses of Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH) "heroes," Hartford HealthCare (HHC) has resisted fair contract proposals and allowed management to violate their rights. The nurses have since filed Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges calling out HHC's intimidation and threatening tactics. They are prepared to strike begining September 22nd if a settlement is not reached.

Faces of Hartford HealthCare

The Faces of Hartford Healthcare project is focused on sharing the stories of the women and men who provide and support bedside patient care in the chain's hospitals and facilities. The goal is to help the community better understand an escalating crisis that these nurses and allied health professionals are struggling to resolve. It's also an important opportunity for these hard-working caregivers to receive the recognition they deserve. 

A Win For Us Is A Win For Windham

Since Hartford HealthCare (HHC) has taken over Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH), there has been a dramatic shift from patient care to corporate profits. Since HHC's "partnership" and acquisition of WCMH, the community has lost vital services such as the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Labor and Delivery Unit. HHC has been slapped with a class-action lawsuit for overcharging patients in its tier system.
