Welcome to the forum. Your answer is 517.13(A) He is wrong about only RMC being allowed though.

thank you for your help but look at 517-13b methods

517.13(B) (BTW what year NEC are you using?) is in addition to 517.13(A), it doesn't relieve the requirements of 517.13(A)

517.13 Grounding of Receptacles and Fixed Electric Equipment in Patient Care Areas
Wiring in patient care areas shall comply with 517.13(A) and 517.13(B).
