New Yorkers have always recognized that immigration means strength and renewal. We are either immigrants or have immigrant family members or ancestors who made their way here to create a better life for themselves and to make a positive contribution to the United States.
At NYC Health + Hospitals we will continue to honor these American values and we will continue to stand with our immigrant patients and employees.
