EXCLUSIVE: Clarke, Parker call on state to investigate claims of ‘unacceptable care’ at Maimonides


A pair of local elected officials are calling on the state’s health department to investigate the state of affairs at Maimonides Medical Center after recent press coverage and patient complaints raised concerns about the quality of care the hospital is providing.

U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke and state Sen. Kevin Parker, who represent large parts of Brooklyn served by the Borough Park hospital, separately penned letters to DOH commissioner Mary Bassett on Aug. 12 and 17, asking that she swiftly take action to investigate both claims regarding poor care made by patients and the way the hospital has presented itself to the community.
