New York hospitals get $204 million from state for renovations, expansions

New York's Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program will give $204 million to fund 95 facilities projects across the state.

The program is facilitated by the Department of Health and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York to help support the Delivery System Reform Incentive Program, which aims to reduce healthcare costs by increasing access to care for patients.

"These funds will enable our healthcare partners and facilities to further modernize and integrate healthcare services as part of our shared goal of improving patient care and access," said Howard Zucker, MD, commissioner of the New York Health Department. "New York is a national leader in delivering first-class healthcare thanks to Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo's steadfast commitment to making sure our healthcare systems have the resources necessary to provide the best possible care."
