Our statement about the tragedy at the Tree of Life synagogue.

On behalf of the entire Highmark Health Enterprise, we grieve for those who lost spouses, partners, family, friends, and colleagues during the tragic incident at the Tree of Life synagogue on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all.

We are grateful to the first responders, clinicians, and law enforcement officers who provided help to the members of the congregation and neighboring communities. We also sincerely thank Allegheny Health Network clinicians and caregivers at Allegheny General Hospital for their role in responding to this tragedy.

In the wake of this senseless act, we stand united with our Pittsburgh communities and celebrate their differences. We view diversity as a broad spectrum of people, customs, beliefs, and experiences, and inclusion as the deliberate action we take to engage all. This is who we are, and through our actions, it's who we'll continue to be.
