Statement in Support of Governor Hochul's $10B Plan to Invest in New York State Healthcare

By Office of Communications & Marketing | Jan 19, 2022

Governor Hochul understands the critical importance of access to healthcare in underserved communities—much like the one SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University serves in Brooklyn. Our University Hospital at Downstate was designated as a COVID-only hospital at the height of the pandemic, providing high-quality, compassionate care.

The State of New York’s investment of $10B will help to reinforce the importance placed on helping those in need of healthcare as we continue to work through the pandemic.

We applaud and are grateful for Governor Hochul’s support to help lift all New Yorkers to health and wellness.
