Both anesthesiologists say they felt intimidated to get vaccinated, saying it went against their Catholic beliefs.

That’s according to the lawsuit filed against MCWAH, which employs medical residents.

In the suit, Drs. Kathryn Wolff and Douglas Grove allege that the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals refused to take their religious beliefs seriously and accommodate them.

It became policy last year that all employees be fully vaccinated or else they would have to quit before November 1.

Wolff and Grove’s requests for exemption were denied.

They tried to prevent the required resignation in court, citing discrimination.

The lawsuit says that in November the doctors were placed on unpaid administrative leave and then fired. The doctors are claiming salary arrears, advance payments, legal costs and damages.

MCWAH said in a statement that it is “confident in its defenses to these claims” but cannot comment on the specifics of ongoing litigation such as this.
