Sumner Place to require COVID-19 Vaccination for all Team Members
The leadership at Sumner Place, a Vetter Senior Living Facility, embraces the COVID vaccines that have dramatically reduced COVID-19 cases and the severity of illness in long term care. The vaccines have offered hope in a time when it is desperately needed.
We have decided to embrace the vaccination mandate and are requiring all team members, volunteers, and contractors to be thoroughly vaccinated by October 1st, 2021, unless a medical or religious exemption has been approved.
Sumner Place has built a reputation on providing Quality Life and Quality Care for those we serve. It is increasingly difficult to fulfill our commitment without requiring all team members receive the vaccination.
To protect all residents, staff, and others in our communities from the risks of COVID-19, our parent company, Vetter Senior Living, strongly urges the vaccination of all health care personnel and supports all facilities who adopt mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policies.
“Our team members, families and residents have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Glenn Ven Ekeren, president of Vetter Senior Living. “Our Vetter Senior Living Family worked hard to make sure those who need it get the highest quality care throughout the ups and downs this past year and a half. The only way we can end it is to get vaccinated, and we believe we can get there.”
