UNMH statement on offensive social media post

Offensive and inappropriate comments related to the death of a Rio Rancho police officer recently appeared on a social media site under the account of a person purporting to be a UNM Hospital employee.

However, the person who posted these hateful comments is not a UNM Hospital employee or associated with UNMH. The leadership, staff and faculty at the UNM Health Sciences Center and UNM Hospital find the posts sick and appalling, and they in no way reflect UNMH’s deep respect for law enforcement, our values or our commitment to providing the best possible care to all of our patients. 

UNM Hospital offers its deepest sympathies to Officer Benner’s family, friends and the Rio Rancho Police Department.
