Everybody has been talking about it. Now we’re doing something about it.
Last week, Pittsburghers joined together to deliver our Code of Conduct for a Strong, Healthy Pittsburgh to our elected representatives and urged them to join us in holding UPMC accountable to the needs of our community.
We asked, does a real charitable hospital…
- Close down Braddock Hospital just to open one across the street from a competitor?
- Give executives multi-million dollar paychecks, private jets and marble bathrooms – while many frontline workers struggle to make ends meet?
- Threaten to shut its doors to 3 million area residents who carry the “wrong” insurance?
- Take billions of dollars of property off the tax rolls while we make painful cuts to our schools and vital public services?
- Aggressively oppose workers who are standing together to raise standards for all working people in our region?
- Creating and delivering our Code of Conduct was just the beginning. We’re building a movement of our friends, families, neighbors and co-workers to make sure UPMC lives up to the law and acts like a real public charity.
