Frequently Asked Questions

Rhode Island Hospital’s commitment to our community is carried out each day by thousands of employees who understand that providing lifesaving care is a momentous responsibility, as well as a great privilege. We are happy to welcome back our dedicated employees and to continue working together to take excellent care of our patients.

Although this week has been difficult, the shared focus of Rhode Island Hospital and its nurses and technicians remains: world-class, compassionate care for our patients and community. We both agree that high quality care for our patients is a priority, that nurse and technician recruitment and retention is important, and that wages and benefits for all of our employees should be competitive.

We are hopeful that, through this shared focus, an agreement can be reached with UNAP soon.
