Who Are We?

SEIU Healthcare, the healthcare arm of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is the largest healthcare union in North America with more than 1.1 million members.

We are doctors and nurses, home care and nursing home workers; we are lab techs, environmental service workers and dietary aides. We are front-line healthcare workers who care for more than 60 million patients across 29 states and two countries. We are caregivers in hospitals, health centers, nursing homes, in-home care and in our communities.

Launched in 2007 with a vision of uniting healthcare workers throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico and delivering the highest quality care to all, we are living this vision today.

Affordable Care Act comes through for Virginia man--twice

John Walsh hopes more people learn about the new law and sign up once the next enrollment period begins; especially some of the families he comes into contact with at the Herndon, Virginia community center where he works.

Critical Month for Healthcare Law

This summer has brought many surprises already. While the shocking defeat of Congressman Eric Cantor -- who led 50 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, supported Medicaid block grants and wanted to turn Medicare into a voucher system -- may seem like good news, we should be worried that even that track record isn't extreme enough for his Tea Party successor. It just reminds me how much is at stake in the 2014 elections for the Affordable Care Act.

We are the Service Employees International Union,
an organization of more than 2.1 million members
united by the belief in the dignity and worth of
workers and the services they provide and dedicated
to improving the lives of workers and their families 
and creating a more just and humane society.
