“Election Day is behind us and the Question 1 ballot initiative was voted down. Massachusetts hospitals stood together against this legislation because of the significant negative impacts it could have had on patients and their ability to access health care throughout the state.
At Baystate Health we value our nurses and the role they play on teams whose care has been recognized nationally for its safety and quality. We recognize the ongoing challenges of the national nursing shortage and will continue our efforts to advance our innovative strategies to educate, recruit, and retain our talented nursing workforce.
We are grateful for the support of our Baystate Health team members and community as we work each day to fulfill our mission to improve the health of the people in our communities every day, with quality and compassion.”
