Save Our State Hospitals

To be delivered to The West Virginia State House, The West Virginia State Senate, and Governor Jim Justice

Petition Statement

DHHR Cabinet Secretary Bill Crouch is attempting to dismantle all state health facilities. (BHHF) The liquidation of state hospitals will be the state’s first approach at privatizing public sector workers and privatizing state mental health services.
There are currently 217 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

Hundreds of public sector jobs will be lost along with essential services to additional thousands of vulnerable mentally ill and elderly citizens. Privatization is nothing more than profiteering. Please join UE Local 170, West Virginia Public Workers Union’s counter-attack. Furthermore, call your Delegate (s) or Senators (s) and tell them you strongly oppose the privatization of all state hospitals. Demand Cabinet Secretary Bill Crouch’s resignation. Demand that DHHR stop spending $ 18 Million dollars a year on out of state contract employees and expedite the hiring process for full-time state employees.
