Media Spotlights Lutheran Executives’ Fight for the Safety Nets
Hundreds of safety net hospitals across the country face uncertain futures. Reimbursement rates and funding are being cut drastically. Wendy Z. Goldstein, LHC president and CEO, helps to shed light on the situation to NPR's national audience on the program "All Things Considered." Click here for the complete story.
Additionally, Wendy Z. Goldstein recently joined forces with Dr. Richard Becker of Brooklyn Hospital and Pamela Brier of Maimonides Medical Center in an op-ed for the October 7 issue of Crain's New York Business (with a version running in Crain's Health Pulse as well) addressing their views on saving the borough's health care delivery system. The op-ed echoed the messages espoused by Wendy Z. Goldstein regarding the threat to safety nets and health care in Brooklyn. The three executives asked, "At a time when Brooklyn is undergoing a remarkable renaissance, with New Yorkers routinely traveling here for food, culture and housing, why is its health care in such a perilous state?" The op-ed clearly outlines exactly what went wrong, why New Yorkers should care, and what's to be done. Read more here.
