Beebe Healthcare Will Require Staff To Be Vaccinated For COVID-19
Beebe Healthcare will move forward with a vaccine mandate next month.
The Biden administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services last week announced a requirement that all eligible staff at healthcare facilities that participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs be vaccinated for COVID-19.
Beebe Healthcare will require unvaccinated team members, contractors and vendors to be fully vaccinated by December 24th.
Beebe has been requiring its staff to be vaccinated or to be regularly tested. New employees have been required to get the vaccine.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, Beebe Healthcare has followed CMS, federal, and state regulations and we are obligated to follow this presidential-CMS policy as well. We are thankful for our team members, as we continue the 105-year tradition of caring for Sussex County,” Beebe Healthcare stated on a social media page.
