KETCHIKAN (AP) -- Ketchikan General Hospital RNs United reached a tentative contract agreement with the hospital last week after seven months of negotiations, the union said.

Union leaders will recommend that the 64 registered nurses employed by the hospital accept the contract in a special ratification election on March 8 and 9, according to Geri Kelly, president of the local bargaining unit.

Dr. Phil Newman, the hospital's director of quality services, said Friday that the administration was hopeful the contract would be approved.
