Stop the Wall Street takeover of NY hospitals!
Some Albany politicians want to let Wall Street take over hospitals in Brooklyn.
Right now, New York State does not allow for-profit corporations to run our hospitals. But that could all change if this bill is passed.
Other states like North Carolina and Arkansas have let Wall Street and private equity firms run their hospitals. It's been a disaster for patients!
Emergency rooms get more crowded. Patients have to wait longer to see a doctor. Nurse and caregiver staffing drops to unsafe levels – meaning that patients can’t get the care we need.
There’s even evidence that patient deaths increase – according to a study from Duke University.
Wall Street already wrecked our economy. We need to tell our lawmakers to put quality patient care before profits!
