Letter: New owners think less of nurses

To the editor,

Good will to all does not appear to be alive and thriving in Hastings this holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Bah! Humbug! Here’s your pay cut.

Will the former Regina Medical Center continue to serve Hastings with the values and commitment under which it was founded 50 years ago? The indication we’ve received from the new owners, Allina and Benedictine Health System, of the now subdivided hospital / nursing home is that they think less of both the nurses and care workers of our community then they do of staff at all of their other hospitals.

You only get one chance to make a good first impression. Please think again about how you’d like to introduce yourself to the people of Hastings.
