MOU (Memorandum of Understanding): #

The hospital’s admin­is­tra­tive team contacted WSNA and the local unit officers regarding volun­tary low census as the hospital has faced some finan­cial challenges. Julie Petersen, CEO, volun­tarily reduced her salary by 20%. The intent is to allow people who can afford to take the time off while those who would be severely impacted finan­cially can continue to work.

This MOU also allows for volun­teers to waive the hospital’s contri­bu­tion to their pension for a specific amount of time. This is completely volun­tary. To view a copy of the MOU as well as a copy of the volun­tary action document, click on the links below:
