The union representing 700 nurses at Altoona Regional Health System are calling for open talks with UPMC, which wants to acquire the Blair County health system.

SEIU Healthcare has started a online petition, at www.qualitycareforaltoona.com, asking that the Altoona community be represented in talks between Altoona Regional and UPMC as they finalize an acquisition agreement.

Altoona Regional, which announced Wednesday that it had selected UPMC as an affiliation partner, owns a 380-bed hospital and other medical facilities in Altoona.
