In urban and rural areas across New York, hospitals continue to be in danger of closing or cutting services. NYSNA nurses are skilled and experienced at building powerful coalitions of patients and community members to keep hospitals open for care.
Since 2000, 28 hospitals have closed across our state. NYSNA is committed to stopping this by organizing comprehensive and strategic campaigns to fight hospital closings.
In 2020, we continue to face many tough fights, including the threatened closure of Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital, and the reduction of inpatient Psych and Detox services after the COVID-19 surge. NYSNA nurses are ready to fight back to protect the healthcare services that our communities need!
