    Union Hospital getting rid of midwives

    Here is an article from our local paper... there is a petition link in the article. Please sign to save our midwives:

    Union Hospital getting rid of midwives

    Please read and share this article so that Union hospital will maybe change their minds or there can be other local doctors or hospital that will hire and sponsor them.

     

    Union Hospital just spent 100's of millions of dollars on a huge new building. And now they cite economic conditions as the reason to cut this type of patient care... Absurd!

    Thank you.

    Sorry to be so skeptical, but we get spammed here sometimes so I'm wary of clicking on the link provided.  Can you tell us where Union Hospital is? Thank you!

    The Hospital is in terre haute, Indiana. The local paper Tribune-Star did a story on it yesterday

    here is the actual link instead of embedding it:

    This really is a shame as this is a large enough community to support such a large hospital expansion but not for them to keep these services.
