MHA Issues Statement Supporting Michigan State University Community
The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.
"Words can’t express the sadness and concern we feel this morning for the victims from the shooting last night on the Michigan State University campus. Our hearts break for the families of the victims and we have in our thoughts those we lost last night and those fighting for their life in the hospital.
The MHA and our member hospitals have extremely close relationships with our higher education partners. We have particularly close ties with Michigan State University due to the many connections the MHA has with the university here in the Greater Lansing area. However, much more than our close proximity, healthcare employs countless Spartans who graduate from East Lansing every year. Our hearts ache for our fellow Spartans and we mourn together.
Lastly, we want to applaud the first responders, including police, EMS, and healthcare workers who selflessly responded to this senseless act of violence."
