I am a health care worker at Auburn Community Hospital. I have been in my position at this facility for over 40 years. I am proud to be part of this hospital and to provide excellent services to the Auburn and Cayuga County communities.
I am concerned, however, that the hospital is having difficulty recruiting and maintaining adequate numbers of staff to provide the quality and attention to our patients that they deserve. The workers at Auburn Community Hospital strive on a daily basis to provide optimal care but they also need optimal compensation and staffing to do their job efficiently.
I encourage the hospital administration and the board of directors to provide the workers with adequate staffing to do their jobs efficiently and to pay them a reasonable wage to retain their services.
We are a small but proud community that deserves a hospital that not only meets our technological medical needs, but provides an environment where the workers can be satisfied in the performance of their job. Thank you.
