Nurses union asks judge to reconsider Yakima Regional closure


A statewide union repre­senting 140 nurses at Astria Regional Medical Center filed an emergency motion Friday asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to recon­sider an order that autho­rized the closure of the Yakima hospital.

In the motion, attor­neys for the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion argue that the order should be recon­sid­ered because Astria Health deprived inter­ested parties, including the union, an oppor­tu­nity to voice objec­tions and did not suffi­ciently demon­strate the need to close immediately.
