We wish to remind the public that the men and women of both the STFA and the HPAE are on the front lines of maintaining order and public safety and the treatment and care of patients, respectively during this crisis.
Representatives of New Jersey’s leading health care unions applaud Governor Murphy for creating a platform for collaboration within the health care industry to develop standardized responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the only public acute-care hospital in New Jersey, and one of three Level One trauma centers in the state, University Hospital (UH) has the monumental task of addressing the public health needs of the greater Newark community.
After a decade of uncertain business practices of for-profit hospitals in NJ, we applaud the Governor for signing legislation to require stricter financial disclosures and greater accountability when those companies put the financial health of the hospital at risk.
On behalf of the nearly 14,000 nurses and health professionals represented by HPAE, we applaud the NJ Senate for their vote to approve the nomination of Judith Persichilli, BSN, RN as Commissioner of Health for the State of New Jersey.
Since Carepoint Health began purchasing Hudson County hospitals nearly a decade ago, HPAE members have stood together to fend off cutbacks, layoffs and reductions in services executed by the for-profit owners.
