Statement from Lisa Shannon, President and CEO of Allina Health on the one-year observance of the Allina Health Clinic – Buffalo Crossroads attack

February 9, 2022 — It is hard to believe that Feb. 9 marks one year since the violent event at Allina Health Clinic – Buffalo Crossroads. This senseless tragedy took Lindsay Overbay from her family, resulted in the injury of four of our team members and deeply affected our Buffalo Crossroads team. Over the past year, all those impacted have experienced deep grief and trauma. There has also been an outpouring of love and support, time and space for reflection, and for many, renewed resilience and strength.

Buffalo Crossroads clinic is our family. The Buffalo community is our family. Allina Health is our family. We have reopened the doors at Allina Health Clinic – Buffalo Crossroads to continue caring for the community that has cared for us. We are grateful for the support we have received from the Buffalo community, our health care partners and communities across the state. On behalf of the Allina Health family, our sincere gratitude for standing with us and for each heartfelt social media post, prayer and gesture of support.
