If COVID-19 has shown us anything, it’s that we need to tackle crises head-on. The plain truth is that the pandemic hit our city and our country so hard in part because our healthcare system was so broken to begin with.
Getting healthcare shouldn’t be daunting, and a better patient experience ultimately leads to better patient outcomes. It’s time to reimagine our healthcare system to build a healthy, livable, and equitable city — and to build resilience and protect us for the future. I’m ready to get to work building that city together. That’s why I’ve put forward a plan to ensure that every New Yorker has access to affordable, high-quality healthcare.
