Leadership in Health Care Reform

NYC Health + Hospitals has led reform to improve the quality of your health care and your health care experience. We are more involved in the community than ever before with plans to help us achieve our goal of reaching patients where they live so they stay well, and live longer, healthier and more active lives.
