SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In its latest campaign to provide quality patient care to residents throughout New York, leaders of the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) will be on hand during the 2015 New York State Fair in Syracuse this week to launch our "Protect Quality Patient Care for Central New Yorkers" campaign.  For more than 30 years, NYSNA has been an active participant in the State Fair, and this week, members will be engaging the community with healthcare materials, giving free blood pressure tests for fairgoers and educating the public about the NY Health Act.

New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) President Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez, RN, Executive Director Jill Furillo, RN and Central NY Board Member Patricia Kuhn will visit with Central NY nurse leaders and discuss the campaign on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st.

On the heels of successful contract wins in New York City, Westchester County and, most recently, Ellis Medicine/Bellevue Woman's Center in Schenectady, the "Protect Quality Patient Care for Central New Yorkers" calls on the management of St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica,  Oneida Healthcare Center in Oneida and Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown to work with nurses to bargain for a contract that encourages growth, stability and guarantees a voice at the table in delivering quality patient care for the community.
