Improving Health Care for Every New Yorker

New York and the Coronavirus
Thank you, health care workers.

This is a uniquely challenging time for New York's health care system. United Hospital Fund applauds health care workers across the tristate area who are selflessly working around the clock to address the spread of coronavirus. We encourage everyone to stay safe and heed the advice of health professionals. For up-to-date information, please visit the coronavirus pages of the CDC, the New York State Department of Health, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Quality and Efficiency

Despite recent and ongoing improvements, health care quality and patient safety in New York still vary tremendously. And too often, health services fall short of fully meeting patients’ needs. UHF is working to help fill the gap by making New York’s health care more patient-focused, outcome-driven, safe, effective, and efficient.

Clinical-Community Partnerships

There’s far more to health than health care alone. To address issues and risk factors that can affect patients’ well-being outside the medical or clinical setting, UHF is forging alliances between the health care system, social services, and the community.
