Stringer subtweets de Blasio in his ‘Healing NYC’ plan to reform public health care


A 22-point public health care reform plan that City Comptroller and mayoral candidate Scott Stringer revealed Thursday seemed to include a heavy dose of criticism at the way the de Blasio Administration has handled the COVID-19 pandemic and mental health crisis. 

Dubbed “Healing NYC,” Stringer’s proposal calls for merging the jobs of city Health Commissioner and head of NYC Health + Hospitals, the city’s public hospital system, into one role as “Chief Health Officer.” The plan also calls for greater health care investments in traditionally underserved or ignored communities across the five boroughs, and reforming how city agencies meet the mental health needs of its residents.
