We Care For Laurel

Have You Heard About the Changes Happening at Laurel Regional Hospital?

What Does This Mean?

This means many of the services that our community currently relies on--such as Labor & Delivery, Intensive Care and Psychiatric departments-- will no longer be available. This also means up to 600 jobs could be eliminated from our community.

What Can We Do?

1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East is working to form a coalition in Laurel to make sure the community gets the services they need for the sick and injured. In the near future, we'll be holding forums with elected officials to call on hospital management and the city to ensure residents get the best care possible.
