Christian Care Skilled Nursing
On August 18th, President Biden passed a COVID vaccination mandate for all skilled nursing facilities that accept Medicare or Medicaid/ALTCS. All staff who work in Christian Care Health Center, or whose scope of duties requires them to be called to work in the Nursing Center, will be required to get the COVID vaccine unless they qualify for a medical or religious exemption. Our Corporate HR Team is currently drafting policy in accordance with the government rules which are expected to be out in September.
To get ahead of this new mandate, Christian Care is offering free COVID vaccinations to any staff who have not yet been vaccinated, including those who are not currently working in the Nursing Center. Employees should speak with their supervisor or the campus Human Resources Director for more information and to schedule an appointment.
Thank you for your patience, and for the trust you place in us.
