From Eric Worthan, CEO, Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center:
Earlier today there was a shooting at the Golden Ridge Medical Center, where Panorama is located. Our number one concern is for the safety of our patients, employees and everyone involved. We have notified employees and patients and are cooperating with the Jefferson County's Sheriff's Office. During our 11 years in business, this is the first time a violent incident has occurred on our campus, and we have policies and procedures in place to ensure patients' and employees' safety. Though today’s incident did not involve a Panorama patient, we will be reviewing those to see if we can make improvements.
