Houston hospital workers were told to get vaccinated — or be fired. Now their case is being heard in federal court

The Houston Methodist hospital system suspended 178 workers who refused to have the COVID-19 shot. “Unfortunately, a small number of individuals have decided not to put their patients first,” Dr. Marc Boom, Houston Methodist’s CEO and president, wrote in a Tuesday staff email that a spokeswoman shared with MarketWatch. “Houston Methodist is officially the first hospital system in the country to achieve this goal for the benefit of its patients,” he said.
