Nurses Demand St. Catherine Keep Maternal Child Health Services Open
New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) nurses are demanding the hospital reverse its decision and keep these vital services available to all those who depend on it.
NYSNA President Nancy Hagans, RN, BSN, CCRN, said: "The abrupt termination of maternal child health services by St. Catherine of Siena Hospital is an alarming decision that endangers the well-being of families in our community. In critical situations, minutes matter, and the closure of these units puts pregnant individuals and critically ill infants at heightened risk. St. Catherine needs to reverse this decision and preserve these essential healthcare services for the sake of the community's health and future generations."
