Coalition for Affordable Hospitals Tells Wealthy Hospitals to Pay their Fair Share
Several New York City labor unions affiliated with the Coalition for Affordable Hospitals held a speak out and rally on Thursday to tell NY Presbyterian and other wealthy hospitals to pay their fair share, after a new report found that the NY Presbyterian system takes over $400 million more in tax breaks than it gives back in charity and community benefits.
This is money that could go to education, transportation, community health and other public services. The Coalition for Affordable Hospitals is a coalition of labor unions, health care providers, community organizations, social justice advocates, and government entities fighting to rein in out-of-control hospital costs that hurt hard-working New Yorkers.
