|“The nurses and doctors who are helping NYC to get through the COVID-19 pandemic are true heroes who deserve our utmost gratitude and respect. But the reported conditions in our public hospitals during this unprecedented public health crisis are alarming, and my office is committed to working with the Governor and the Mayor to find answers.|
“Our public health system serves families and residents that already face significant barriers to quality health care, and our frontline workers can’t take care of us if we fail to protect them.
“We must ensure that our public hospitals have the funding, protections, resources, and support they need, properly managed and coordinated, to protect New Yorkers during these uncertain times – and I am ready to do everything in my power to help.”
