SOS-C Policy Memo: A Community Response to the Berger Report

At the end of 2011, the Brooklyn Health System’s Redesign Work Group released it’s recommendations for reforms of the Brooklyn health system, in particularly its financially vulnerable hospitals.

In this report, Berger and his team recommended a number of proposals that would negatively impact access to quality, affordable health care for many residents of North and Central Brooklyn – especially communities of color.

As a response, the Save Our Safety-Net Campaign has developed a response that summarizes and critiques the Brooklyn redesign process, gives an overview of the health needs of affected communities, and outlines policy recommendations that will help, not hurt, the health care safety net in Brooklyn so that all New Yorkers can have access to affordable, quality health care in their communities.
