Black and Low-Income New Yorkers Largely Shut Out of Major Academic Hospitals

Physicians for a National Health Program

WASHINGTON - Few Black New Yorkers receive care in New York City’s elite private academic medical centers (AMCs), according to a study published Thursday [Feb. 2, at 11:30 p.m. EST] in the International Journal of Health Services. Uninsured and Medicaid patients are also markedly underrepresented at the city’s major academic hospitals. In contrast, patients in Boston’s hospitals are much less segregated by race or health insurance status.
