Long Beach Press-Telegram

Hospital officials say patient services at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children’s Hospital will remain unaffected during the nurses’ strike Thursday.

Hospital officials signed a contract for replacement nurses to cover the registered nurses participating in the one-day strike and said they are prepared for the picketing.

“So far, it looks like we are going to be open and have full services across the board for patients,” said Dr. Susan Melvin, associate chief medical officer.
