We recognize that the protests and anger expressed across our region and our country are in response to not just the most recent senseless deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and many others, but to a painful history of systemic racism, injustice and brutality.

The same urgent and outraged need for change is at the heart of community health, which started during the civil rights movement in the late 1960s. Today, as always, we stand with our patients, our staff and communities of color. We will honor your truth, provide a safe place for healing and continue to advocate for the health and well being of all our neighbors.
