Hospital Giant Community Health Systems Ordered to Pay $2 Million For RN Fired, Defamed for Patient, Union Advocacy

WASHINGTON - A civil jury has ordered an Ohio hospital, part of one of the most notorious anti-union hospital chains in the U.S., to pay over $2 million in damages for its actions against Ann Wayt, an Ohio registered nurse it fired, illegally sought to have her nursing license revoked, and then defamed in retaliation for her outspoken patient advocacy and support for her union.

NNOC/NNU Co-President Malinda Markowitz, RN praised Wayt for “standing up for herself, her family, and her colleagues against the harassment and attacks by a multi-billion corporation on their right to form a union.”
