Elmhurst Hospital receives $5.5 million in funding from Queens borough president


Fourteen months after Elmhurst Hospital was overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients during the initial wave of the pandemic, elected officials joined Queens Borough President Donovan Richards as he pledged his commitment to fund two significant healthcare investments at the public hospital.

“Today, we are announcing a truly historic investment in both the heath of our borough and the healthcare heroes at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, who have shown indescribable bravery throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Richards said. “This major investment will fund a number of projects at Elmhurst, which will expand access to critical care for thousands of families. By allocating this funding, we are thanking our healthcare heroes not just with our words but also with our actions.”
