October 29, 2018
The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) is profoundly saddened by the tragic shootings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. Our thoughts and prayers are with the survivors, families and friends of victims, and the greater Pittsburgh community.
During this time of unspeakable loss, we recognize the exceptional and selfless efforts of the first responders, Pittsburgh hospitals, and state and community leaders. The coordination and communication needed to respond during these times of crisis is complex, and every second matters.
We are deeply moved by the incredible compassion, empathy, and support that has poured out from the community and state to help the victims, their families, and the communities that grieve with them. We will continue to hold them close in our hearts.
