Holy Cross Hospital in the news

In March 2017, Holy Cross Hospital has agreed to pay $4 million and will have to distribute a remaining $5 million in a pension plan, as part of an agreed settlement for an issue regarding if the hospital should have to follow a federal law designed to protect employee pensions despite its religious affiliation. The issue arose when Holy Cross claimed it was exempt from following the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, which insures that pension plans be sufficiently funded, due to the hospital’s religious affiliation. There are some religious affiliated hospitals who say they shouldn’t be held to follow this law because their plans are technically “church plans” and church plans are exempt. Despite this issue being argued in higher courts, Holy Cross Hospital thought it would be best to settle this issue and to move on.
