Probably something in between would be helpful. Pulling him out of the school seems like a big move. Could you arrange for a meeting to go over the health issues with the team and develop accommodations if needed? If his health issues are significant enough that they could potentially get in the way of learning (such as through many missed days, etc) he might be able to have a plan in place that outlines his needs more concretely and the accommodations necessary to meet those needs. Sounds like it was a routine school policy that was just 'over applied' in his case. Meet with the nurse, the principal, the teacher and outline his needs and make a plan for going forward.
