[WCCO-TV News, February 18, 2021]

Hospital workers are hoping to heal after the deadly shooting at a Buffalo clinic killed a medical assistant and injured four more health care workers.

Allina Health is relying on its spiritual team to help care for the caregivers at its hospitals and clinics after the tragedy. WCCO shares how one chaplain is spreading his mission of peace.

Forty miles from Buffalo, fears remain that the same thing could happen at a hospital in Minneapolis, where the clinic doors are open to the community.

“I saw many staff afraid,” said Kazuhiro Sekino, a chaplain intern at Abbot Northwestern Hospital. “Chaplain is here to take care of spiritual pain everybody has,” he added.
