Mitchell Katz, MD, will continue as president and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals after renomination by New York City Mayor Eric Adams and confirmation by the health system's board of directors, according to a March 31 news release. 

Dr. Katz has helmed the city's public health system since September 2017.
