Nonprofit Catholic Owned Hospital Denies Religious Exemptions to Approximately 650 Employees for COVID Vaccine


Ascension Providence Hospital in Novi, Michigan has denied religious exemptions to approximately 650 employees for the COVID-19 vaccines.

Ascension was founded as a nonprofit Catholic system and is one of the largest private healthcare systems in the country ranking second in the United States by number of hospitals in 2019.

Ascension says on its website that it will provide its associates a process for requesting an exemption similar to the process they use for the annual influenza vaccine.
