On Saturday, Methodist Dallas Medical Center confirmed two health care workers, including at least one nurse, were shot and killed near the labor and delivery area of the hospital earlier that morning. While details remain scant at this time, the shootings appeared to have been the act of an unstable individual.

“The Methodist Health System Family is heartbroken at the loss of two of our beloved team members. Our entire organization is grieving this unimaginable tragedy,” a statement from the health system’s executive board read. “Our prayers are with our lost co-workers and their families, as well as our entire Methodist family. We appreciate the community’s support during this difficult time.”

The statement added that “out of an abundance of caution,” police staffing would be increased at the hospital campus, “including for mothers and babies.” The Methodist Health System said it recently installed new camera systems, bolstered physical security measures and held ongoing active-shooting training for employees.

Dr. Serena Bumpus, CEO of the Texas Nurses Association (TNA), released a statement Saturday, calling the shooting at Methodist “unacceptable.”

“No person should fear for their life for merely going to work, especially a nurse or health care worker whose passion it is to help others heal,” Bumpus said in the statement.
