Community Hospital To Fire Unvaccinated Workers Despite Losing 26% of Beds Since September

Many nurses and healthcare workers have been seeing the writing on the wall for months now. Hospitals across the United States have been sending notices to their workers, pressuring them to get vaccinated. On Veteran’s Day, Missoula’s Community Medical Center went a step further and told workers that they need to either get vaccinated or find new work.

“We fully support the federal vaccine mandate,” the notice from Missoula’s 4th largest employer stated. “We know the COVID-19 vaccine is our best defense against this virus and getting vaccinated supports our mission of Making Communities Healthier.”

The “Making Communities Healthier” marketing campaign may appear to be a contradiction on its face, however. One worker who shared the notice they received estimated that up to a quarter of the organization’s workforce could be terminated. This is on top of staffing shortages that started to pick up in mid-September. Without nurses and staff to man hospital beds, the beds have to be shutdown, reducing the hospital’s overall capacity.

According to Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services hospital capacity report data, since September, Community Medical Center has lost over 26% of its bed capacity going from 139 total beds in early September to 103 beds as of Monday. Since October of last year, the hospital has lost 32% of its overall bed capacity.

Statewide, Montana hospitals have lost 460 total beds since August, a reduction of 15% of the state’s overall bed capacity. Governor Greg Gianforte mobilized the National Guard to fill in for staff reductions at Missoula hospitals mid-September, sending 24 Guard to Missoula after a request from the county on September 17th. Another Missoula hospital, St. Patrick’s Hospital, has lost 12% of their total bed capacity since mid-September, as well.

Community Medical Center told staff that they had by Monday, December 6th, to receive either the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine or at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. If workers refuse, they will be placed on administrative leave. If workers are not fully vaccinated or have not taken their second shot by January 4th, 2021, they will be fired within seven days of the deadline.

The hospital vaccine mandate is likely a violation of a new state law, however. House Bill 702, passed in the most recent legislative session, protects workers against being discriminated against based on vaccination status.

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen filed a lawsuit November 5th, asking a federal court to immediately block the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private employers. If allowed to take effect, the illegal mandate will harm Montana employers and employees who are already struggling.

“If a president can unilaterally force people to submit to a medical procedure they don’t want, then there’s seemingly no limit to the federal government’s control over our lives. President Biden’s illegal mandate is an egregious overreach and sets the country down a dangerous path,” Attorney General Knudsen said. “Forcing these injections on Montanans at the threat of losing their jobs infringes on the rights of our state, individuals, and businesses. Montanans are already suffering under President Biden from supply chain problems and worker shortages. His illegal dictate will only make the crisis worse.”

Florida legislators are discussing withdrawing from OSHA. “We want out of OSHA. We’ll submit our own regulatory authority and say goodbye to the federal government,” House speaker Chris Sprowls said during a press conference regarding a special session starting next week.

🤔 Wonder how and if this will have any effect on demand letter by Missoula’s Community Medical Center– U.S. appeals court affirms hold on Biden COVID-19 vaccine mandate
“Missoula’s Community Medical Center went a step further and Told Workers That They Need To Either Get Vaccinated Or Find New Work. –
If Workers Are Not Fully Vaccinated Or Have Not Taken Their Second Shot By January 4th, 2021, They Will Be Fired Within Seven Days Of The Deadline. ”
“We fully support the Federal Vaccine Mandate,”


What happened to the fact that it is illegal in the State of Montana to require employees to be vaccinated as a requirement for their job?

Submit your exemptions as requested
). Make them go through the process of either accepting or rejecting. Its good to get it on public record and make them explain the rejections. Dont quit. Make them fire you. Leave the door open down the rd for lawsuits of wrongful termination. You do not have to justify religious or moral objections. I feel for you folks and encourage you to hold the line…dont comply. It sucks no matter what. But liberty is to precious to hand over to tyrants, to valuable to let it die with submission. I hope your community turns out to full throatedly support & picket for your God given human right to body autonomy. I also hope our govenor steps up even more then he’s done to date. God help us all as we pray, experience & fight, for deliverence from this evil over reach of our government & anonymous business boards supporting, and enabling the once unthinkable slid into tyranny. Come on MT we need to stop this from happening in our state. We should be a bacon of liberty for this nation. Can anybody give the contact info for the board of directors at any of the hospitals that are submitting to & inforcing this travesty?

Dr Robert Malone-there’s gonna have to be a reckoning- People still look to America for leader ship the shiny city on the hill the Camelot-

We can become that again

The narrative is collapsing.
Listen to someone who originally fell for it hook and line and sinker:
“We were told: You get the vaccine and you get back to normal. And we haven’t gotten back to normal.”
She then admits that cloth masks don’t work, passports are useless, and the handling of Covid has been a catastrophic moral crime.
This realization is happening around the world. The boomerang is coming!
We are winning the information war.
