Watsonville Community Hospital
75 Neilson St.
Watsonville, CA 95076
From the Sentinel:
"Registered nurse Tim Thomas worked in the hospital's operating room for nearly 30 years before he was terminated Tuesday, a little more than two weeks after he traveled to Florida to protest the merger of the hospital's parent company with another major health care organization.
"A group of Watsonville nurses protested the Thomas firing Tuesday, and a candlelight vigil in his support will be held 5-7 p.m. Friday at the hospital."
