Texas Hospital CEO Says Facility May Stop Delivering Babies Over Vaccine Mandate

The head of the Goodall-Witcher hospital in rural Texas expressed concerns that the facility may have to stop delivering babies due to a recent vaccine mandate handed down by the Biden administration stipulating that health care workers at Medicare- and Medicaid-funded hospitals get the vaccine. Chief Executive Adam Willmann said that some experienced nurses are not vaccinated and don’t plan on getting the shot. Some of those nurses, he said in a recent interview, work in the hospital’s maternity ward. “They are also near retirement age and a few of them have already voiced that ‘I will just retire,'” Willmann told NPR. “And then a couple of other nurses said, ‘Well, I’ll just go work for my husband’s construction company.'” Willmann said he has been pushing hard to get all of his 250 employees to take one of the vaccines, noting that so far, vaccination rates are at around 70 percent. … Save 10% on Citrus trees with code CITRUS
