The release comes three months almost to the day on which the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. rocked the Orlando community.

Orlando Health tweeted about the patient’s release, saying, “As of today, Orlando Regional Medical Center reports that all 35 Pulse victims who were patients at ORMC have been discharged.”

Forty-four patients were brought to the hospital following the June 12 shooting.  

Nine of the victims died shortly after arriving at the hospital, and another 35 stayed at the Level One Trauma Center—some for hours and others for days and months.

Orlando Health took in the largest number of Pulse shooting victims after the attack.

Surgeons performed 76 operations on victims.

In a message to the public, the hospital staff said, “Our hearts and prayers are with the Pulse nightclub victims and their families as we continue to stand in support of our community.”
