NYS State and the Feds: Make sure money goes to hospitals that are truly serving low-income and uninsured people

There are longstanding inequities in how hospitals have been funded through past Medicaid waivers and other decisions. Over the past ten years, we have witnessed the closure of 19 hospitals in New York City, with many of those closings occurring in low-income, immigrant, and communities of color. Financial distress has been one of the major causes of these closures. We need to make sure that our hospitals are adequately and fairly funded.

Please sign the moveon.org petition created by our allies at CPHS and spread the word! Read more >>

New Brooklyn Theater will perform “The Death of Bessie Smith” at Interfaith Medical Center. The play centers on a black woman who is refused care at an all-white hospital. This is an important artistic project about healthcare inequality that will take place at a hospital threatened with closure that serves low-income patients of color. The play will begin performances Thursday, January 9, 2014 and run through Sunday, January 19.

Tickets are free, but there is limited availability, so don’t delay. Click here to get your tickets now! Read more >>
