The Supreme Court recently upheld the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate, which requires recipients of federal Medicare and Medicaid funding to ensure that employees, including third- party contractors, are vaccinated against COVID-19. The Court's decision has clear implications for owners of health care facilities and their contractors with active construction work in 2022 and beyond.
Attorneys Chris Dunn and Frank Morris discuss the scenarios in which the CMS vaccine mandate could extend to construction workers in health care facilities, such as hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and other clinical facilities.
This is the first episode in “Owner's Outlook,” a special series at the intersection of health care and construction. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes in the series.
