If you know anyone in the healthcare field, it will likely come as no surprise to you that a majority of the folks in that line or work are of the liberal persuasion, politically speaking that is. (EDIT – apparently, based on comments from a number of folks from around the country, this liberal healthcare worker thing might just be a California issue) That is not a problem per se, but when the CEO of a large healthcare provider network goes out of their way to write and disseminate anti-Trump propaganda to all employees and volunteers, that becomes an issue. As a conservative, if I were an employee who received this in my email, I might feel less than welcome at work.
The following is the text of the email:
“This message is sent on behalf of Sarah Krevans, Sutter Health President and CEO
To: All employees, physicians and volunteers across the Sutter Health network
Many of you have shared your questions about the impact of President Trump’s recent executive order restricting entry into the United States for nationals of certain countries.”
Really? You’ve had employees, doctors and volunteers contacting you, the CEO of the entire health system to ask you about a presidential executive order regarding a temporary ban on immigration from a handful of countries, that were identified by the Obama administration, as harboring terrorists? Your doctors, employees and volunteers were so concerned about how that executive order might effect their ability to provide health services that they went straight to the president of the entire health care system?
Sorry, but I smell some serious male bovine excrement…
“Our primary concern is the health and well-being of patients in our care, as well as the health of our communities. Respect for diversity, inclusion and cultural competence are woven into every aspect of our not-for-profit network. All patients and their families – regardless of their religion, background or country of origin – are welcome in our care centers. We will continue to admit and care for patients in a manner consistent with our non-discrimination policies and practices. We do not check immigration status nor do we plan to in the future.
I deeply appreciate the unique backgrounds and experiences of the more than 53,000 employees, more than 10,000 doctors and 5,000 volunteers who serve our patients. I firmly believe that our people’s divers perspectives and insights lead to better decisions and better care. My commitment to you and our patients and their families has not changed.”
Blah, blah, blah. Lots of liberal feel-good dribble.
“We’re also actively evaluating how we can support any employees, physicians and their families possibly impacted by this uncertain environment.”
Holy crap! You actually have employees and doctors who are currently not American citizens, and whom are living in those specified countries known for harboring terrorists? How did you manage to hire them if they are not here and do not have valid resident/citizenship status?
“Within Sutter Health, we will continue treating each other with kindness and respect. As I shared with you in November, we are unwavering in our commitment to diversity and inclusion and will not tolerate prejudice, bigotry or discrimination.”
… unless it is directed at the current US president, and any of you hate mongers who voted for him …
“Every day, I see your remarkable dedication and compassion and that you continue to provide exceptional care and service to our patients, their families, our communities and each other. Thank you.”
Seriously, does Sarah here realize how divisive this email is? She just sent an email to every employee and told them that if they support the presidents TEMPORARY ban on immigration from a small number of countries, that she will not tolerate their opinions. I wonder if she realizes that this is the same exact thing that Obama himself did previously. Did she send out an email to all employees when Obama did this?
The following photo of the department wide email was sent in by a follower of our Facebook page.
The amount of irrational behavior being exhibited by those on the left over the past several months, which has only increased tenfold over the last two weeks, is absolutely mind boggling! Talk about completely out of touch with reality…
