New York State is in the midst of a healthcare crisis, but it's business as usual in Albany. Right now, there are deep cuts to Medicaid and Safety Net hospitals being proposed in the state budget. The state Department of Health is still considering proposals to close down hospitals, such as Montefiore Mount Vernon hospital, which is in an under-served and medically vulnerable community.
Email your state legislator today to demand a moratorium on healthcare cuts and hospital closures!
NYSNA is opposed to funding cuts that impact the healthcare of the most vulnerable New Yorkers. But especially in the midst of the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, it is irresponsible to cut healthcare funding.
State lawmakers should look at budget alternatives that raise revenue by making the ultra-wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.
As the deadline for the state budget approaches, we need you to make your voice heard.
Email your state legislator today to demand a moratorium on healthcare cuts and hospital closures! We are in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic, and it would be irresponsible for our elected leaders to cut funding to live-saving Medicaid and Safety Net hospitals. Any application to close down a hospital should also be denied: we need all the hospital beds and resources we can get to battle this crisis!
