Medical Liability

GNYHA is a powerful voice against legislation that would worsen New York hospitals’ sky-high medical liability costs. New York’s hospitals and doctors deliver world-class patient care 24/7, but their medical liability costs are by far the nation’s highest. Working with stakeholders, GNYHA is a proponent of comprehensive medical liability reform.
