“The next mayor of New York City will be sworn in on the exact same day that healthcare reform expands coverage to over a million New Yorkers,” said Dr. Jeffrey Kile, Regional Vice President for the Committee of Interns and Residents-SEIU Healthcare and an Emergency Room doctor in Brooklyn. “The logistical challenges for our providers and our hospitals will come on top of the already daunting public health issue that come being one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world, with so many vulnerable and at-risk populations. This is our chance to ask the tough questions to make sure the next mayor has a vision to protect and promote the health of all New Yorkers.”
