AHA Statement on Tulsa Shooting

Rick Pollack
President and CEO
American Hospital Association

June 2, 2022

Yesterday was another unfortunate example of gun violence in our country. This latest incident was in a medical facility, a place of healing, on the campus of Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Okla. We grieve with the victims and their families, as well as the entire Saint Francis Health System team, as they mourn the loss of four members of their community.

This further reinforces the need for action to be taken to stop these tragic events. Legislators are working on a bipartisan effort to address gun violence, and we urge them to act quickly.
