"The changes we're facing . . . '

Earlier this week the Post-Standard published a letter to the editor from three nurses who work in the ICU at Community General Hospital.

Their letter noted that, among the public comments on Upstate's acquisition of Community, many have been by representatives of a labor union.

Most employees, said the writers, "understand that. . . the changes we’re facing are in the best interest of our patients, the community and the employees."

Despite some unanswered questions, they acknowledged "the management teams of both CGH and Upstate . . . have shown a good faith effort in keeping everybody informed."

These nurses have worked at Community between eight and 21 years, each. I thank them for taking the time to voice their opinion.
