Labor shortage being felt at hospitals, healthcare systems

Almost every industry across the state over the past 18 months has been affected by a labor shortage.

Included in the labor shortage situation are health care staff, who are needed now more than ever as daily COVID-19 infections continue to surge across the state and in Northern Michigan.

Dr. Christine Nefcy, chief medical officer with Munson Healthcare, said Munson Healthcare — like many health care systems across the State of Michigan — is suffering from staffing issues for a variety of reasons.

Munson Healthcare, like other Michigan health systems including Ascension, Beaumont, Bronson, Henry Ford, Spectrum and University of Michigan, announced last month policies for staff to require COVID-19 vaccinations.

Munson Healthcare officials said the decision is a proactive move in anticipation of a federal requirement.
