A Statement from Allina Health
In the weeks following the senseless tragedy at our Allina Health Clinic-Buffalo Crossroads of February 9, 2021, we have collectively experienced a range of powerful emotions: grief, disbelief, heartbreak, anger and many more. Our roots in the Buffalo community run deep as a care provider, employer and as your neighbor. We thank you for many words of comfort, care, donations and acts of kindness. That gratitude is deeply felt by the Buffalo Crossroads clinic team, who wanted to share their appreciation in their own words:
We want to thank everyone, those nearby and those we do not even know around the country, for the outpouring of love and support that has surrounded our Buffalo Crossroads clinic team over the last month. To see an entire community come together to show their compassion and care for each of us has brought us comfort when we needed it most.
The horrific events of February 9, 2021 affected each of us in very profound ways. We are deeply grateful for each sunrise that we can up to be with those we love. What has not changed is our commitment to provide care for our patients and our beloved Buffalo community. An act of evil will not define us. We will stand together with strengthened resolve because that is what we have always done. We will stand strong because we are #BuffaloStrong/#LindsayStrong/#AllinaStrong.
The Allina Health Clinic-Buffalo Crossroads team
Across our Buffalo community and beyond, we are united in our determination to persevere and heal together.
