Methodist condemns racist graffiti

Racial drawings and messages were found in a public men’s restroom at Methodist Hospital, according to a statement from Clarian Health, Methodist’s parent organization.

Clarian Health’s top officials sent a letter to employees Tuesday to condemn the drawings, threaten disciplinary action and ask for information about their origin. The letter said that “steps were immediately taken to secure the area and remove the offensive messages.”

The letter was signed by Dan Evans, Clarian’s CEO, Sam Odle, CEO of Methodist Hospital, and Ora Pescovitz, CEO of Clarian’s Riley Hospital for Children.
