Message from Your Negotiating Committee on the Cerberus Acquisition of Caritas Hospitals

By now, you have all heard that Cerberus has acquired Caritas hospitals. Today, we had a conference call with Caritas senior management to ask them a number of questions we received from our members. Here is what you need to know:

  1. All of our MNA contracts have successorship language. That means our contracts will remain in place. Our wages and benefits will not change as a result of this acquisition.
  2. No hospital or service will be closed as a result of this acquisition.
  3. The state process for approval of this deal will take four to six months.
  4. Construction of capital projects at each hospital will start as soon as possible, before the approval process is completed.
  5. The management teams at each hospital will remain in place.

If you have any questions, please call your committee chairs/co-chairs. Thank you.
In Unity,
Your MNA Committee
