Luminis Health agrees with the Maryland Hospital Association consensus statement regarding hospital requirements for employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. As always, our priorities are the care and safety of our employees, members of our medical staff, patients, and visitors, and we use science and data to guide us in such decisions.
At this time, nearly 75% of our employees, volunteers and medical staff have received a COVID-19 vaccine. In the coming weeks, Luminis Health will continue to educate our workforce about the benefits of comprehensive workforce vaccination, as well as address any concerns about the vaccine. COVID-19 vaccination will become a requirement for our workforce in the near future. There will be exceptions for religious and medical reasons. As always, we are committed to the health and safety of our patients, staff, and the communities we serve.
