Covering front line workers

PHOTO COURTESY SLHN Due to advanced planning and scheduled vaccine rollouts across all campuses, St. Luke's University Health Network was successfully the first hospital in the region to vaccinate all front-line workers who chose to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and is now offering it to all employees and private health care practitioners in the region. Approximately 7,000 employees have been vaccinated. “All of St. Luke's employees are essential to the smooth running of St. Luke's hospitals and network,” says Jeffrey Jahre, MD, senior vice president of Medical and Academic Affairs and section chief emeritus of Infectious Diseases. “From our physicians and nurses to those who keep the hospitals clean, prepare our food and deliver our needed supplies we cannot function without them. We will now offer the vaccine to all St. Luke's employees.”
