Statement on Uvalde, Texas, School Shootings


Statement attributable to:
Bruce Siegel, MD, MPH
President and CEO
America’s Essential Hospitals

WASHINGTON — We mourn the terrible loss of life in Uvalde, Texas, and join others in the health care community in an urgent call for action to improve gun safety and reduce gun violence as necessary measures to protect public health.

We must act now and do more to understand and confront the root causes of violence. Essential hospitals know the imperative of this work, due to their mission of serving marginalized people at heightened risk of interpersonal violence and their experience as front-line caregivers for mass casualty events.

Action must involve all with a stake in building safe and healthy communities and embrace comprehensive strategies to end the epidemic of violence in our country. Better access to mental health care and social services are important parts of the equation, but not solutions on their own. Sustainable solutions also will require policymaking, research, and prevention.

We stand with all who have been touched by violence, and we commit to doing our part to build safer and healthier communities.
