For Immediate Release:
HANYS Board Statement on Supporting Inclusion, Tolerance, and Compassion
As healthcare leaders in the thousands of rural, suburban and urban communities across the state of New York, our hospital doors have been and will remain open and our caregivers provide compassionate care to all, regardless of race, gender orientation, creed or nationality.
We condemn and denounce racism, bigotry, violence and hatred in all forms. The recent riots in Charlottesville and the other all too frequent terrorist acts only serve to strengthen our resolve against bigotry, anti-Semitism or hatred in any form.
We stand together to help support and advance our community, state and national efforts toward peace, inclusion and respect for all.
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing hundreds of non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
