Tenet Healthcare Corp. donated $100,000 to support shooting victims and their families in El Paso, Texas, where a gunman killed 22 people and injured more than two dozen at a Walmart on Aug. 3, as reported by ABC News.

Tenet donated to the El Paso Community Foundation's Shooting Victims' Relief Fund on behalf of The Hospitals of Providence, as well as Tenet subsidiaries United Surgical Partners International and Conifer Health Solutions.

Tenet agreed to match employee contributions to the foundation up to $50,000.

The Dallas-based company operates four acute care hospitals in the El Paso area, as well as 50-plus outpatient centers, physician clinics and other facilities. About 5,300 Tenet employees work in the community.

In a press release, Ron Rittenmeyer, Tenet's executive chairman and CEO, said: "This devastating event has caused an inconceivable amount of pain and grief for the entire El Paso community. We salute the efforts of the El Paso Community Foundation to provide support during this time of sadness and loss.
