It was a pleasure to meet with Assemblyman John McDonald and other elected officials today in honor of Community Health Centers Advocacy Day.

Whitney Young Health is one of 65 federally qualified health centers with 650 sites in NYS providing care to more than 2 million patients. We are seeking support to ensure continued access to care for all New Yorkers, including the uninsured, as well as an increased percentage of the Health Care Facility Transformation Fund to assist in efforts to reduce preventable emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
