Special report: In hospital bankruptcies, patient care pays the price

The Cost of Care. Across the country, unions are standing up for patients as for-profit ventures bankrupt hospitals and compromise community health. “It’s easy to come up here and make judgments based on numbers without looking at the people we serve,” said Helene Mendez, an ICU registered nurse who testified alongside Marques at the St. Francis hearing, which turned out nearly 200 UNAC/UHCP nurses to a Lynwood community hall. Last fall, UNAC/UHCP nurses at the Parkview Community Hospital Medical Center in Riverside led efforts to save threatened resources in that hospital bankruptcy.
