    Brooklyn is experiencing a remarkable renaissance, but health care in our borough is in a perilous state. Four hospitals have shut down or face closure. Some argue it’s all for the best, and that even more closures are needed. But can New York City’s most populous borough handle it, and what types of health care institutions will emerge to meet our health care needs?

    Please join us for a Town Hall discussion at Brooklyn Law School. Local policy leaders and hospital administrators will discuss health care coverage in Brooklyn and present their vision for the future.
