(READ) Health care CEO who told Covid vaccine critics to “shut up” isn’t afraid to lose his job

The following is an excerpt from an article by Hannah Mitchell in Becker’s Hospital Review.

Springfield, Mo.-based CoxHealth CEO Steven Edwards has been at the center of several viral tweets over the COVID-19 pandemic. Here, he discussed with Becker’s the motivations behind those tweets, the responses to his tweets within hospital walls and the responsibility of being a CEO activist.

In a July 1 tweet, Mr. Edwards said, “If you are making wildly disparaging comments about the vaccine, and have no public health expertise, you may be responsible for someone’s death. Shut up.”

He was also recently sued for a tweet he made after the mother of a young patient took issue with “COVID” being used as a promo code for free telehealth visits. The woman posted on Facebook saying she didn’t want her son associated with the word “COVID,” and Mr. Edwards tweeted that the promo code was not “part of a conspiracy theory.”

The CEO told Becker’s the tweets are necessary to combat misinformation in the county as delta variant cases spread rapidly. He’s heard claims not based on facts, such as that the vaccine causes infertility and that masks cause the virus to spread. Even local politicians have ignited misinformation campaigns in his community. (Continued…)

    Mr. Edwards keeps talking about “conspiracy theories,” perhaps he needs to understand that there are no conspiracies, but there also no coincidences.

    Being a former hospital CEO, if I were him. I would be very careful about his public comments and his board’s “unwavering support.”

    1. John Chamberlain, have
      you read this report :

      The MEDICAL Mafia’s deadly reach
      extends to psychotropic drugs trig-
      gering mass shootings and suicides.

      P S Y C H I A T R I C Drugs cause mass killings :

      “Kurt Danysh, age 18, and on Prozac, killed his father with a
      shotgun. He is now behind prison bars, and writes letters, trying to
      warn the world that SSRI drugs can kill.”

      Drugs prescribed for these mental disorders:

      “ THE following list of mass shooting perpetrators and the drugs they were taking or had been taking shortly before their horrific actions was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident. Is there a link between Noveske’s death and his “outting” of information numerous disparate parties would prefer to suppress, for a variety of reasons?

      I leave that to the individual readers to decide. But there is most certainly a documented history of people who “knew too much” or were considered a “threat” dying under extraordinarily suspicious circumstances.

      From Katherine Smith, a Tennessee DMV worker who was somehow involved with several 9/11hijackers obtaining Tennessee Drivers Licenses, and was later found burned to death in her car, to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb, who exposed a CIA Operation in the 80’s that resulted in the flooding of LA Streets with crack cocaine and was later found dead from two gunshot wounds to the head, but was officially ruled as a “suicide”, to Frank Olson, a senior research micro biologist who was working on the CIA’s mind control research program MKULTRA.

      After Olson expressed his desire to leave the program, he was with a CIA agent in a New York hotel room, and is alleged to have committed “suicide” by throwing himself off the tenth floor balcony. In 1994, Olson’s sons were successful in their efforts to have their fathers body exhumed and re examined in a second autopsy by James Starrs, Professor of Law and Forensic science at the National Law Center at George Washington University. Starr’s team concluded that the blunt force trauma to the head and injury to the chest had not occurred during the fall but most likely in the room before the fall. The evidence was called “rankly and starkly suggestive of homicide.” Based on his findings, in 1996 the Manhattan District Attorney opened a homicide investigation into Olson’s death, but was unable to find enough evidence to bring charges.

      As I said, I leave it to the individual readers to make up their own minds if Noveske suffered a similar fate. On to the list of mass shooters and the stark link to psychotropic drugs.

    2. Spot on. And to me it’s obvious that there are numerous conspiracies at work simultaneously. Interests are intertwined ipso facto why wouldn’t the activities of the interested and invested intertwine also? The foxes are in the henhouse.

    3. Easy to be fearless in tweets when parroting the not so free press and corrupt AMA.
      He will be repayed for his “valor” with government largess.

  2. So why is he ignoring the warnings of REAL experts?? Dr. Yeadon, Pfizer CEO for 17 years, Dr. Malone, Inventor of the mRNA technology, Dr. Bridle, Canadian doctor that worked on the creation of the vaccine, Dr. McCullough, Dr. Mikovits, Dr. Fleming just to name a few experts that know more about the subject than this controlled CEO. So he not only chooses to ignore people who have been injured and the 10’s of thousands that have been KILLED by this poison shot he also chooses to ignore REAL experts who have warned people of the dangers of this vaccine now and in the future. Mr. Edwards and people like him are the people that one day will face an international tribunal and if not on earth they will face the real judgement in the next life.

    These people are not in the healthcare business. They make a lot of money only when you are very sick. So it is quite logical that the biggest pushers of these dangerous, deadly, unsafe, untested and damaging experimental pseudo vaccines are not concerned about safety and real science. What if I told you the vaccines in question next time you are re exposed to a SARS 1 or SARS 2, may kill you quicker because of pathogenic priming antibody dependent enhancement reaction cytokine storm ? That is what the clinical studies done on cats and ferrets indicated in 2004. But hey after all it will be another good reason for pushing again and again and again and again for even more dangerous booster shots. As of today in the EU 20 000 people have died directly from the vaccine and 2 000 000 have been damaged (Euro Vigilance System). That represent only 1% of the real damages. A real gold mine in sum for these blood suckers from the disease industry. That is what these people should be called. Disease racketters.

  4. Too many people are dying from the shots or suffering adverse effects. The shots should have been stopped months ago because of it. Why are they still giving them and demanding that everyone get them? It’s not for our health.

  5. Sharyl, I have a vaccine question please.
    Does it seem as though J&J is being targeted? Keep seeing negative stories in that vaccine and not so much on the other 2 used in the US. I know there are side effects for the other two vaccines but seems media not reporting on them?
    Thank you

  6. If his facility can’t now handle the number of COVID patients they are seeing, what happened to the capacity they should still have from the past year?

  7. What makes me suspicious is why all the threats to make you get the vaccine? If it is completely safe, as the government is saying, why the arm twisting? Also, there is validity in questioning why the deleterious effects are not published so one has to look for them on the internet?
