The NYC Health + Hospitals Annual Doctors’ Day celebration recognizes physicians who have made an important choice: to spend their careers advancing the public health system’s mission of providing care for all who seek it.

This year, we celebrate 25 outstanding doctors who are representative of the thousands of other highly skilled and mission-driven physicians in our hospitals and neighborhood health centers. They reflect the diversity of New York City, with cultural backgrounds that trace to Haiti, the Philippines, Dominican Republic, Ukraine, and other nations. They help to make us one of the safest, most culturally responsive, patient-centered health care systems in the country.
