New York Safety Net Hospital Coalition calls on Hochul for support


The New York Safety Net Hospital Coalition, as well as hospital staff, held a press conference at the Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn on Friday, demanding Governor Kathy Hochul improve the Big Apple’s outdated Medicaid reimbursement system, and calling for additional funds for safety net hospitals in the FY 2024 budget.

Safety net hospitals are hospitals that serve predominantly low-income patients, many of whom are either uninsured or rely on Medicaid.
