Matrix Medical Network to Require COVID-19 Vaccinations for Workforce

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., September 9, 2021 — Matrix Medical Network (Matrix) today announced they will require all Matrix team members to be fully vaccinated by October 25, 2021 barring certain exemptions. Matrix has provided expert clinical care and health services to millions of at-risk individuals where they live and work for more than 20 years and is taking this important step to ensure the safety of employees, their families, and the companies and communities they serve.

“Safety is a top priority for Matrix and our COVID-19 vaccine mandate reflects that commitment. Vaccination is the single most effective thing we can do to protect our team members, their families, and their communities,” said Matrix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Keith Henthorne.

“Matrix has worked since the beginning of the pandemic to develop and implement strategies to mitigate the risk of the virus to our employees and their families, as well as within the communities and companies where we live and work. With rapidly rising COVID-19 case counts and the contagious and dangerous Delta variant, which has led to increasing rates of severe illness and hospitalization among the unvaccinated U.S. population, now is the time to take this important step to ensure we have a fully vaccinated Matrix workforce,” said Matrix Chief Medical Officer and Group President Daniel Castillo, MD, MBA.

“The pandemic taught us many lessons and reinforced the importance of not delaying preventative care measures like vaccination to help protect populations such as younger children who are unable to get vaccinated themselves. The recent rise in COVID-19 cases driven by the easily transmitted Delta variant underscores the need for vaccinations to protect our families, our communities, and ourselves,” said Matrix Clinical Care Chief Medical Officer Ryan Heyborne, MD, MBA, FACEP.
