About Hospital Operations

California’s hospitals and health systems employ more than half a million people — the front lines of health care in the state. Hospitals have the deepest respect and appreciation for health care workers — the hundreds of thousands of women and men who give of themselves each day to care for others.

Priority 1 for every hospital and health system is the safety of patients and workers, and hospitals endeavor to provide their staff with wages and benefits that are unmatched anywhere else in the nation.

By doing these things, and working with legislators and policymakers, hospitals are able to ensure the needs of the patients and communities they serve will continue to be met.
