About NYC Health + Hospitals

NYC Health + Hospitals is the largest public health care system in the United States. We provide essential inpatient, outpatient, and home-based services to more than one million New Yorkers every year in more than 70 locations across the city’s five boroughs.

Our 11 acute care hospitals provide top-ranked trauma care, dozens of inpatient specialties, and mental health services, making communities healthy through a robust network of hospital-based primary care services for children and adults. Our hospitals have earned numerous special designations for quality and culturally responsive care including LGBTQ Healthcare Equity Leader, Baby Friendly, Safe Sleep, and top ranks by U.S. News and World Report.

Our five post-acute/long-term care facilities have earned the highest five and four star ratings by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare for their excellent long-term care, skilled nursing care, and rehabilitation services.

Gotham Health is our network of Federally Qualified Health Center clinics across the five boroughs that offers patient-centered primary and preventive care services for the entire family and is focused on meeting community health needs.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Community Care offers comprehensive care management and better access to social support services in patients’ homes and communities.

Our health plan, MetroPlus, offers low to no-cost health insurance to eligible people living in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. MetroPlus is the health plan of choice for more than 500,000 New Yorkers including many New York City government employees.

OneCity Health is the NYC Health + Hospitals-sponsored Performing Provider System (PPS) – the heart of our population health efforts, designed to reduce avoidable and unnecessary hospital stays. As the largest PPS in New York City, OneCity Health comprises hundreds of health care providers and community-based organizations who work together to keep communities healthy.

Our diverse workforce is uniquely focused on empowering New Yorkers, without exception, to live the healthiest life possible.
