At A Glance
Verity Health Systems declared bankruptcy in August 2018. In Los Angeles County, this affects St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood and St. Vincent Medical Center, hospitals that serve thousands of patients in their communities. St. Francis Hospital is a level two trauma center serving some of the city’s most vulnerable populations while St. Vincent provides vital cardiac and cancer care. SEIU-UHW is fighting to make sure these hospitals stay open to serve the patients who rely on them and continue to provide good healthcare jobs for the caregivers who take pride in working there.
