Steward Health Care will offer employment to all active employees in “good standing” when the transaction is complete, according to the purchase agreement with CHS.

Steward Health Care is a physician-led health care services organization and community hospital network with 3,000 physicians, 10 hospital campuses and 24 affiliated urgent-care provider locations, according to its website.

“We are more than willing to work with a new system,” said Laurie Hornberger, president of the Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association. Hornberger, a registered nurse, said YGDNA represents 210 registered nurses at Northside.

“We always knew that there was a potential for a sale,” she said.

Hornberger hopes Steward shares the same beliefs as the nurses do in offering quality care to patients and serving the community.
