On a Medical Isolation panel, do the branch breakers have to have a switched neutral, since 120 volt power is being disconnected?

No. The transformer produces 120V between lines one and two. These feed both hot and neutral terminals of the receptacles, through the breaker(s). So, the panels use standard two pole breakers, not a switched neutral breaker.
