YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Nov. 18 Forum Health's Northside Medical Center is a locally controlled community asset which provides not only health care choice and access to the Youngstown community, but also 1400 jobs and $1.5 million in tax revenues annually.
It is in the community's best interest for Forum Health to emerge from bankruptcy intact; and the Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association (YGDNA) supports the business plan validated and approved by the Huron Group (hired by Forum Health to assist in the restructuring process) detailing financial success for all three Forum hospitals.
YGDNA is hosting a Community Action Day in support of Northside Medical Center on November 19, 2009 outside of the Nathaniel R. Jones Federal Courthouse, and invites the community to join them and show support for Northside's employees and patients.
