WHAT: More than 500 frontline nurses who work within the Providence Oregon health system will hold an online summit about raising standards for nurses, workers and patients on Tuesday, Feb. 15. The nurses—represented by the Oregon Nurses Association (ONA)—will be joined by elected leaders, worker advocates and community allies including Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran, MD and State Representative Travis Nelson, RN.

ONA represents more than 4,000 nurses working in 10 Providence health system locations in Oregon including critical local community hospitals in Hood River, Medford, Milwaukie, Newberg, Oregon City, and Seaside as well as home health and hospice nurses and advice line nurses. In addition, ONA nurses care for patients at two of the largest hospitals in the state—Providence St. Vincent Medical Center and Providence Portland Medical Center—serving Oregonians throughout the Portland metro area. Providence is Oregon’s largest health care provider and one of the state’s largest corporations.

WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 15 
4:30 – 5:45 p.m.   

WHERE: Virtual video summit available on Zoom and ONA's Facebook page.  

WHO: More than 500 Oregon nurses, worker advocates and community allies including Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran, MD and State Representative Travis Nelson, RN. 

WHY: ONA nurses and community leaders are coming together to advocate for safety, staffing and care improvements during and after COVID-19. 

Throughout the pandemic, ONA nurses have called on Providence to prioritize patient and staff safety by providing basic COVID-19 safety measures including adequate personal protective equipment (PPE), timely exposure notifications, regular access to COVID-19 testing, sick leave and worker input on COVID-19 issues. 

Now nurses are now standing together to address long-term safety, staffing and health issues as nurses’ contracts at multiple Providence facilities expire or are up for negotiations in 2022. ONA nurses in every Providence facility in Oregon have pledged to continue working together in 2022 to put patients first and raise standards for all our communities.

The Oregon Nurses Association (ONA) is the state’s largest and most influential nursing organization. We are a professional association and labor union which represents more than 15,000 nurses and allied health workers throughout the state, including more than 4,000 nurses working at Providence health care facilities in Oregon. ONA’s mission is to advocate for nursing, quality health care and healthy communities. For more information visit: www.OregonRN.org.
