    November 20, 2018

    Dr. Tamara O’Neal, who was killed Monday in a shooting at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center in Chicago, was a physician with the Emergency Physicians Medical Group, contracted to work as an emergency room physician at Franciscan Health Michigan City for a little less than a year.

    Dean Mazzoni, president and CEO of Franciscan Health Michigan City, said in a statement she was respected and well liked. “Dr. O’Neal was well liked by everyone on our medical and nursing staffs while she was here. She was very kind and Christian-focused in her approach as an ER doctor. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends. It’s tremendously painful to lose a promising young physician in such a tragic way.”
