Hadassah Hospital Employees and Management at Odds, Again

from Haaretz:

Hadassah staff warned they face wage cuts

Just four months after opening a new hospital tower at its Ein Karem campus in Jerusalem, Hadassah University Hospital is facing serious financial problems and will have to institute streamlining measures…

The medical organization’s management has been in contact with representatives of its physicians and other staff, and has informed them that salary cuts, apparently of 2%, will be necessary for the next two years. The workers are demanding that the composition of the institution’s board be changed as a condition to any wage reductions. The U.S.-based Hadassah Women’s organization, which owns the hospital, controls its board.
