Why NYC Health + Hospitals Needs Your Support

The Fund for NYC Health + Hospitals - the hospital system's philanthropic arm - supports programs that help achieve NYC Health + Hospitals' mission to provide healthcare for all regardless of income, insurance, or immigration status.

Since 2006, the number of uninsured New Yorkers seeking healthcare services at NYC Health + Hospitals facilities has grown by 20 percent. 

At NYC Health + Hospitals , no one is turned away.

It is often said, and it's true: At NYC Health + Hospitals, no one is turned away.  In our hospitals, diagnostic and treatment centers, and long-term care facilities, physicians, nurses, and staff are dedicated to providing high-quality, safe care and to upholding the noble mission of public healthcare. 

Whether it's helping individuals with hypertension lower their blood pressure, a mentoring program to provide positive alternatives for youth at risk for gun violence, or a visual representation for non-English speaking residents of how to give children their medications, NYC Health + Hospitals staff are continuously striving to make innovative and compassionate improvements even at a time when we struggle with significant financial constraints that may not be fully addressed by federal funding or healthcare reform. 

Your support will make it possible for us to support programs that respond to pressing community needs, and to evaluate successful pilot projects so they can be scaled up and spread across the city.  It is this kind of support that allows NYC Health + Hospitals to continue its dedication to our 1.2 million patients and the health of our city.
