Forgot to mention:
If the building is owned or the apartments are rented by a non-profit corporation, they might be exempt from rent-stabilization rules.
Your reasonable-rent apt might be guaranteed by your employment contract: either an implied guarantee or actually spelled out in that contract or any other papers you received from the hospital. Gather those documents, too.
It's time for the tenants to organize: at least enough to contribute to the initial cost of a lawyer! Tenant.Net has a section on organizing, too.
The tenants might need more than a 'tenant-attorney': you might need someone who can handle the employer-employee situation. See Tenant.Net and Nolo.com for more advice.
How to find a lawyer: enlist as many people as possible to ask friends for recommendations, call some, interview a few in person (s/b no charge), pick one. Also: referrals available through the Bar Associations: try: http://www.nysba.org/ , tel: 800-342-3661 click on Public for referral and other helpful online info.
