Because we believe in the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccine and take to heart our responsibility to do all the good we can for all the people we can, we require WesleyLife team members and business partners to be fully vaccinated as a condition of their affiliation with our organization.
The foundations on which WesleyLife was built helped shape the reasons behind our decision to require the vaccine.
Well-Being: Committing to the health, safety, and holistic well-being of those we serve is a fundamental part of who we are.
Excellence: From leading the way in infection mitigation to being among the first providers to make the vaccine available, we remain committed to the health of our residents, clients, and team.
Heritage: We have always taken to heart John Wesley’s advice to “do all the good (we) can,” and we have a history of doing the right thing for the greatest number of people.
Innovation: Relying on science to help us implement best practices around COVID transparency, we established lines of communication to help disseminate current and reliable information that assists people in making informed decisions.
