Please join Philanthropy New York’s Health Working Group for a special funders meeting with Dr. Mitchell Katz, the new President of NYC Health + Hospitals (H+H) at Philanthropy New York on Wednesday, April 4th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
NYC Health & Hospitals is a sprawling system with a $7 billion budget and about 40,000 employees. It has long served the most vulnerable New Yorkers, which philanthropy is also deeply invested in supporting. As the new President, Dr. Katz brings his experience running the Los Angeles public health system and confronting financial challenges in a rapidly changing policy environment (please see Dr. Katz’s biography below).
Please join us to discuss the issues facing H+H, to hear Dr. Katz’ vision for the system, and to explore potential philanthropic partnerships.
Space is limited. Please register early.
About Dr. Mitchell Katz
Dr. Katz joins NYC H+H after having stabilized the second-largest public health care system in the country, Los Angeles County Health Agency, an agency that combines the Departments of Health Services, Public Health, and Mental Health into a single entity. During his tenure, Dr. Katz moved the Department of Health Services away from hospital care and toward outpatient services.
He created the ambulatory care network and empaneled over 350,000 patients to a primary care home. He eliminated the deficit of DHS through increased revenues and decreased administrative expenses, and used the new ACA funding to pay for a modern electronic health system, Orchid, which has now been implemented in 90% of DHS clinical sites. He moved over 1000 medically complex patients from hospitals and emergency departments into independent housing, thereby eliminating unnecessary expensive hospital care and giving the patients the dignity of their own home.
Dr. Katz is a graduate of Yale College and Harvard Medical School and was an RWJ Clinical Scholar.
All interested funders.
