Your care is our top priority

A message about labor activity at UC medical centers

UC Davis Medical Center entrance

To our patients:

You may notice hospital staff wearing buttons printed with union messages, or it is possible you may see and hear a labor rally and picketing being conducted outside our hospital. Although it is likely to be noisy or disruptive, this activity will not affect the care you receive.

The team caring for you is highly trained and well-qualified. We are proud of all UC Davis staff and the exceptional service they provide every day, and proud that several respected organizations rank UC Davis Medical Center among the nation's best.

The University of California is involved in labor negotiations with unions representing some of its workers, including some patient-care and service workers. The negotiations involve labor contract issues being negotiated for the entire UC system, and they affect many types of health-care employees such as imaging technologists, anesthesia technicians, pharmacy technicians and dietary workers.

We regret any disturbance or inconvenience this may cause. Our top priority is to provide safe, high-quality care for our patients in a respectful environment. We are committed to meeting your needs, and have contingency plans to provide all necessary medical services during labor negotiations.
