The Community Medical Centers comprehensive hospital network is the region’s largest private employer with the largest regional physician panel of private and academic physicians. . We’re also extremely proud of our more than 100-year history and our role as the region’s health care safety-net, providing the most charity and uncompensated care in the area. Our variety of outpatient programs and services gives us the unique ability to provide a world of opportunities for professional growth and personal advancement.
Community Medical Centers – a locally owned not-for-profit, governed by a board of local citizens and medical practitioners – believes employees are best served by open, direct dialogue with management, without a union go-between. And our patients are better served when we invest our resources in technology, staffing and facilities – rather than in protracted or recurring union negotiations and mandatory union dues.
The decision to be represented by a union is a serious one that’s ultimately up to our employees. We believe it’s important to have open dialogue with our staff about unionization, just as we would on any other employment-related topic. In large part, these communications are governed by the National Labor Relations Act to ensure fairness to all sides. Following this dialogue, if a significant number of employees wish to pursue unionization, Community supports their right to a secret-ballot election. And regardless of an election’s outcome, Community will support its remarkable workforce in every way possible.
Currently among our more than 6,000-employee workforce we have one unit that has elected to have labor-union representation. The Stationary Engineers Local 39 of the International Union of Operating Engineers/AFL-CIO represents about 16 Central Energy Plant employees on our Community Regional Medical Center campus.
