PLAINS TOWNSHIP — Registered nurses and hospital administrators at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center reached a tentative agreement for a new contract late Tuesday night, the final day of the expiring three-year contract.

Geisinger spokesman Dave Jolley said the 400 members of The Service Employees International Union, which represents registered nurses at the Plains Township facility, will meet Thursday for a ratification vote. Jolley said if the union ratifies the contract, the hospital will do the same. He declined to provide details of the proposal, including length. He said once the contract is finalized, both sides will comment.
