It is with sadness and a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Bradley Haas who died as a result of yesterday’s tragic shooting at New Hampshire Hospital. The staff at New Hampshire Hospital serve their patients with respect, compassion and with the utmost care and that extends to all who work there.
We extend our gratitude to New Hampshire’s first responders and all those who swiftly acted to minimize further harm and provide care to those in need. We thank them for supporting the health and safety of New Hampshire residents and ensuring the health and safety of our patients, health care workers and our communities.
Hospitals are not just a place of healing. They are a sanctuary of compassion, care and hope. All hospitals in the Granite State are here to lend support to New Hampshire Hospital’s leadership and staff as they now grapple with the unexplainable loss and tragedy that has unfortunately befallen them.
