Milwaukee, October 1, 2019: Community Town Hall Regarding Ascension St. Joseph Hospital

Please join us October 1, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm at Wisconsin Black Historical Society, 2620 W. Center St. for a TOWN HALL hosted by the St. Joe’s Accountability Coalition-SJAC.
We will share the results of our COMMUNITY SURVEY regarding services at St. Joseph Hospital and we will call on Ascension Health leadership to negotiate a COMMUNITY BENEFIT AGREEMENT with specific, enforceable commitments for the future of this important healthcare resource.
Come join the community effort to ensure quality accessible healthcare, greater investment, and family sustaining jobs for Milwaukee’s north side.
SJAC is a coalition of community groups and unions committed to ensuring that St. Joseph Hospital – and its corporate parent Ascension Health – live up to their obligations as nonprofit institutions. SJAC believes that St. Joe’s must not only provide healthcare services that address the community’s pressing health needs, but also be a high-road employer, a responsive community partner, and a responsible local business.
SJAC formed in 2018 to fight Ascension’s plan to close St. Joe’s. The coalition includes Metcalfe Park Community Bridges, African American Roundtable, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities, Sherman Park Community Association, Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals, Milwaukee Area Service and Hospitality Workers Organization, and Citizen Action of Wisconsin.
