Saint Luke’s Health System is committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. Effective Nov. 1, 2021, full COVID-19 vaccination is a condition of employment for all SLHS employees.

Saint Luke’s Health System Critical Access Region Chief Executive Officer Steve Schieber answered questions during a conference call on September 1st regarding the COVID-19 vaccination mandate announced by Saint Luke’s on August 30th. The health system will require all employees to be fully vaccinated by October 30th.

Wright Memorial Hospital of Trenton and Hedrick Medical Center of Chillicothe are part of the health system. Schieber is also the CEO of both of those hospitals.

The feedback he has received has been “largely positive.” Schieber noted a lot of employees are happy to see the mandate in place and think it is overdue. Others are concerned. He is “pleasantly surprised” by how many employees are thinking about getting a COVID-19 vaccine for the first time and getting into the science and clinical aspects.
