Hospitals and health systems across New York play a vital role in improving local economies and communities. They provide critical healthcare and emergency services; contribute vital resources to communities through jobs, tax revenue and capital improvements; and are among the largest employers across the state. They make these tremendous contributions despite facing significant financial challenges, including having the 2nd narrowest average operating margin in the country.
HANYS has created a series of analyses to illustrate the impact of hospitals and health systems across the state. Browse our statewide, region, legislative, and hospital- and system-specific reports to see how New York’s hospitals and health systems impact their local economies and benefit their communities.
The economic impact figures in these reports demonstrate the tremendous economic and community benefit hospitals and healthcare systems provide across the state. It’s important to note that these numbers, including the statewide financial indicators, were collected before the COVID-19 pandemic and do not reflect the significant financial toll that has had on New York’s healthcare system.
