After months of battling the worst public health crisis in our city’s history, we’re more aware than ever of the critical role of our independent, community-focused hospitals. Healthcare heroes put it all on the line to protect the health and safety of our family, friends, and neighbors. As New York continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, and prepares for what’s next, there’s a plan to save the Brooklyn Hospital Center to protect the independent care that Brooklyn deserves.
While a lot has changed in 175 years, the independent, full-service, community-based care that The Brooklyn Hospital Center provides remains vital to keeping the community healthy and to ensuring justice and equity for the more than 300,000 individuals the hospital serves annually.
While a lot has changed since then, now — more than ever — Brooklyn needs a hospital of its own to meet its needs and keep Brooklyn healthy.
As an independent, full-service, community-focused institution, The Brooklyn Hospital Center can tailor its healthcare services to the unique needs of the neighborhoods it serves.
Recognizing the value of independent care, The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s plan ensures a financially sustainable future as an independent healthcare institution so that it can continue to provide quality, full-service care in a way that directly responds to the needs of its neighbors.
