Media Statement - Moncton Shooting

(MONCTON) June 5, 2014 - Media Statement

JOHN MCGARRY, PRESIDENT AND CEO, HORIZON HEALTH NETWORK

As this unthinkable tragedy continues to unfold, I share the shock and sadness of everyone in Moncton and people throughout the province of New Brunswick.

My heart goes out to the victims, their family members, police officials and first responders. We have called in extra staff and physicians at The Moncton Hospital to help deal with this situation. We are restricting visitors to those with critically ill family members, and ask all others to refrain from visiting at this time.

DR. DHANY CHAREST, CHIEF OF STAFF, THE MONCTON HOSPITAL

At this time I can confirm that we have received a total of 2 victims related to this tragedy. They have been treated and are in stable condition in hospital. We have also received a third patient from a separate incident that occurred Wednesday evening. That person is in critical condition in the OR.

The Moncton Hospital is a level 1 trauma centre in New Brunswick and we brought in extra staff including surgeon and trauma experts' surgeons.

Again, to echo Mr. McGarry's sentiments, my sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families of this terrible tragedy.
