New York’s hospitals and health systems improve the economy and community

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 third worst average operating margin in the country.
