Two Hospital in the Orlando area announced that they will not be charging the victims of the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack.
Hospital officials praised the local community and the first responders, saying that no bills will be collected as they want to contribute.
The amount to be waved is estimated to be $5.5 million, a cost of care for the wounded and traumatized after the terrible shooting. The money will be accounted for by insurance companies and charitable contributions.
David Strong, Orlando Health President and CEO, said, “The pulse shooting was a horrendous tragedy for the victims, their families and our entire community,”
“During this very trying time, many organizations, individuals and charities have reached out to Orlando Health to show their support. This is simply our way of paying that kindness forward.” He said to the Orlando Sentinel.
