Skip to comments.Texas hospital faces potential closure due to COVID-19 vaccine mandate, CEO says
Posted on 09/15/2021 4:03:01 PM PDT by Hojczyk
The CEO of a hospital in Texas is cautioning that his facility is facing possible closure following President Biden's announcement last week that healthcare workers will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
If the mandate takes effect, the Brownfield Regional Medical Center will likely lose 20-25% of its staff, CEO Jerry Jasper says. Without those employees, the hospital will likely shut down.
The Biden administration has ordered that healthcare workers who staff hospitals and facilities that receive either Medicaid or Medicare funds must receive the vaccine or lose federal funding.
"It's huge in our rural community as all the other rural communities," Jasper said during a recent KCBD interview. "We all have high poverty levels and stuff like that, so a lot of Medicaid usage in our communities and stuff like that."
In addition to the healthcare worker mandate, Biden also announced he would direct the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration to enforce a rule for companies with more than 100 people that all employees get vaccinated. Federal workers and contractors will also have to get the vaccine.

Interesting how people in the medical service industry refuse the jab; interesting.
Everything the Democrats do turns to shit and ends in disaster.
If they can’t shut off fed funds to sanctuary cities then this won’t fly either
Shut it down!!!
And stuff like that (twice in one sentence). What CEO talks like that?
So, has Jimmy Kimmel weighed in yet? Seems the vaxxed have their choice of hospital beds, but Healthcare will be self serve.
Yes, all those healthcare workers refusing the vaccine. I wonder what they know that we don’t...
Federal funding is what put these hospitals into this mess to begin with.
They are lying hand over foot to list people as covid cases for more federal pig milk.
A lot of them have already had covid. Getting a vax for something they have natural immunity for is a reversal of the risk/benefit ratio. The benefit is 0 to the recovered, and the jab has risks >0.
Not really. They know the vax does not provide immunity, and causes adverse effects, including death.
They are just like everybody in government insisting everyone needs to be vaxxed except for them.
Wow!! 20-25% ?
I figured only about 5-10%
Good. Hold the f#cking line, nurses!!
Probably one who the employees respect andadmire and are willing to work hard for.
Biden and Democrats DON’T CARE!
Hell, they are willing to LET PEOPLE DIE by withholding and preventing Ivermectin and HCQ as early outpatient treatments for the Covid infected.
Everythig the Democrats do is specifically engineered to turn to shit and end in disaster.
Thousands Of LA City Workers Request Exemptions Or Fail To Respond To Demand For Vaccine Proof
The City of Los Angeles says thousands of its employees have failed to respond to a demand for proof they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have requested an exemption on religious or medical grounds. Vaccination reporting data for every City department was released by Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office after the NBC4 I-Team first reported Monday that thousands of LAPD employees indicated they intended to request religious exemptions to avoid a mandatory vaccination.
“Every City employee is required to provide their vaccine status, and the deadline has passed. Anyone who hasn’t given us that information must do it now,” Garcetti said in a statement. The City extended its first deadline from Sept. 7 to Sept. 13, and still thousands of City workers have not provided vaccination proof or filed an exemption request, including 7,846 Department of Water and Power employees, 3,997 Recreation and Parks employees, 3,856 police employees, and 1,553 fire employees. Out of 57,476 city workers the data shows 5,183 have requested religious exemptions, and 2,651, or 51% were filed by LAPD employees.
The City was still negotiating Tuesday with labor unions to work out disciplinary procedures for employees who either fail to report or refuse to be vaccinated, a senior City official said.
