MHA Comment on the Tulsa Hospital Shooting

 
June 2nd, 2022
From President & CEO Steve Walsh

“Over the past several weeks, more unthinkable acts of gun violence have touched every sacred place of refuge in American society – our schools, our places of worship, and now our hospitals. It’s clear that nothing is off-limits when it comes to the motivation of hate. Our hearts ache for the victims, their families, and the caregivers on the frontlines of these atrocities. 

“We echo our colleagues across the country in demanding that gun violence be treated like the public health crisis that it is. We must devote the same concepts of harm prevention and continuous improvement that we employ in healthcare to the public health issue of gun violence in America.”
