A New York hospital announced that it will be “unable to safely staff” its maternity department and will halt its baby deliveries later this month after 30 staff members quit due to the facility’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
“The number of resignations received leaves us no choice but to pause delivering babies at Lewis County General Hospital,” Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald Cayer said at a press conference Friday.
The hospital will stop delivering babies on Sept. 25.
The staffers resigned after the hospital revised its emergency regulation two weeks ago, now requiring that employees get vaccinated against COVID-19 without allowing for religious exemptions. Medical exemptions are still permitted under the new policy.
This new mandate came after then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced that all state healthcare workers must be at least partially vaccinated Sept. 27. (Read more from “U.S. Hospital To End Baby Deliveries After Mass Resignation Over Vaccine Mandate” HERE)
