About SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania

We are the nurses, caregivers, dietary workers, lab technicians and housekeepers who work in Pennsylvania's nursing homes, hospitals, home health care, state health facilities and auxiliary health care services.
Together, we advocate to protect patient care and expand access to quality health care for all.

We lift each other up and create pathways for ordinary nurses and healthcare workers to become extraordinary leaders for change.
