Quality In, Quality Out

“At our hospital, we fought for a secure retirement, ensuring that our years of dedication to our patients receive proper compensation. As healthcare workers, we invest in the health and well-being of our patients day in and day out. It was imperative that we also invested in ourselves and our futures.”

Ann Aponte

Phlebotomist, Medical Lab Assistant



“Having a shared voice ensures that direct patient care givers have safe working conditions. Safety is our number one priority and our patients. As I AM Healthcare members, we are able to raise safety concerns without fear, and we make sure that those concerns are handled in a timely manner through our workplace committees.”
