Central Maine Medical Center, a key hospital for regional healthcare, issued a dire warning about the need to shut down critical care services last week if they are forced to fire or lay-off all the unvaccinated workers. The hospital appealed to the Governor’s office, Democrat Janet Mills (pictured below left), for a testing option to avoid losing some of the most important care providers in their system.

Today, the hospital quantified their issue and announced they were going to suspend pediatric admissions as well as heart attack and trauma admissions, because they just will not be able to operate.

Unfortunately, the Democrat Governor has announced she doesn’t care if the hospital has to shut down. Mills’ stated her unilateral jab mandate will remain in place and the vaxxed and unvaxxed citizens of Maine will die until they comply with the vaccine rules.

Because it’s all about the public health right?

MAINE – […] Central Maine Medical Center posted on Monday that it was suspending pediatric, heart attack and trauma admissions.

The decision came after the hospital gave a grim contingency plan to lawmakers on Friday that included cutting intensive care unit beds by 50 percent if it loses all workers who remain unvaccinated when the mandate goes into effect this month.

[…] Central Maine Medical Center cited “unprecedented healthcare workforce shortages” in a Tuesday statement. A COVID-19 pandemic workforce shortage has led to 500 job openings across the hospital’s parent group, which has said it could lose up to 200 workers of 3,000 in total unless they decide to get vaccinated within a few days.

[Mills] said her policy “will keep both health care workers and their patients alive” and noted that the upcoming federal policy — which will supersede the state mandate — has no exception.
