In response to heightened rhetoric and tensions concerning immigration laws, NYC Health + Hospitals issued an “Open Letter to Immigrant New Yorkers” to reassure all immigrants that they can get medical care in any public health care setting without fear.
The letter, signed by NYC Health + Hospitals Interim President and CEO Stanley Brezenoff and Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Nisha Agarwal, promises all immigrants: “The City of New York has a policy to protect immigration status and other confidential information. NYC Health + Hospitals will honor your right to privacy.”
The letter is available in 13 languages. Click below to read or download your preferred language.
