Banner Health Update: Maui Memorial responds to HGEA letter

January 07, 2013

As noted in a previous eBulletin, Banner Health, a national non-profit hospital system based in Phoenix, Ariz., is currently in talks with Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) to form a partnership. Because of Banner Health's anti-union stance, we are concerned about how this partnership would negatively impact employees and their jobs.

On Nov. 27, 2012, HGEA had sent a letter to MMMC Administrator Wesley Lo requesting information about the effect Banner’s potential takeover would have on current employees. We recently received a response from Mr. Lo that was vague and did not address any of our questions in detail — see copy of his letter to HGEA.

We will continue to keep you updated via eBulletin and the HGEA website as we receive any new information about Banner Health and this important issue.
