Orlando Pulse shooting: Last patient leaves hospital
ORLANDO–The last remaining patient from the Pulse nightclub massacre has been discharged from Orlando Regional Medical Center, according to a series of tweets on Orlando Health’s verified account.
The medical center treated 35 patients from the shooting and surgeons performed 76 operations on the victims, Orlando Health said.
“As of today, Orlando Regional Medical Center reports that all 35 Pulse victims who were patients at ORMC have been discharged. …Since the incident, surgeons performed 76 operations on the victims.Our hearts and prayers are with the PULSE nightclub victims and their families as we continue to stand in support of our community,” the tweets said.
Orlando Health is a not-for-profit health care network that includes the Orlando Regional Medical Center. That facility is a few blocks from the Orlando club.
The Pulse nightclub shooting in the early morning hours of June 12 is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Orlando Health and Florida Hospital — which also treated people shot in the attack — both said last month that they won’t bill survivors for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
