As we mourn the tragic events that occurred in Orlando over the weekend, the Division of Medical Quality Assurance joins friends and colleagues in Central Florida and across the state to thank the dedicated health care professionals who have so selflessly served during this troubling time.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to stay with the victims, their families and all those who have been affected.
