HANYS President Dennis Whalen Statement on Governor Cuomo's 2014-15 Executive Budget
HANYS and Governor Cuomo share many of the same goals for health care in New York State during this time of transformative change in health care delivery. The Governor's 2014-2015 budget includes some important, positive, and much needed investments in health care, including the push for federal approval of the Medicaid Waiver, critical for providers all across the state. Many hospitals and health care systems are financially fragile and lack the resources needed as they embrace reform and improve delivery of care for our patients.
HANYS and our hospital and health system members look forward to working with the Governor, Department of Health, and the Legislature to outline the needs of New York's hospitals and health systems, to adequately support our health care system and ensure access to high quality, affordable health care for every New Yorker.
