A Letter to the Archbishop

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Ascension Health has been making cuts to direct patient care at Genesys Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. You can read here a letter sent to the Archbishop of Detroit by Karen Matts, a licensed nurse formerly at Genesys.

Even though the Catholic Church teaches a commitment to labor and workers’ rights, the Church has been silent on Ascension’s treatment of its workers.

Karen’s moving letter states, “Just because corporate America has become unethical and amoral, why does Ascension have to follow suit? Many of us have devoted our entire lives to an organization that has now lost its humanity.”
