San Francisco-based Dignity Health said it has a tentative four-year agreement with the California Nurses Association on two contracts covering 10,500 nurses at 27 facilities in California and 1,200 at the three St. Rose Dominican Hospital campuses in Nevada.
CNA did not disclose specifics, saying only that, if ratified, the contracts “would provide competitive wages ... (and) additional workplace injury insurance and an enhanced retiree health benefit.”
“This agreement honors our commitment to our employees and our healing mission while acknowledging the significant challenges Dignity Health and other providers are facing in thecurrent health care environment,” said Darryl Robinson, executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Dignity Health.
Dignity Health bills itself as one of the nation’s five largest health care systems, with a 21-state network of nearly 11,000 physicians, 56,000 employees and more than 300 care centers, including hospitals, urgent and occupational care, imaging centers, home health and primary care clinics.
