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.
