Diversity is Our Specialty

NYC Health + Hospitals honors the diversity of our workforce – many of whom are immigrants themselves.

We are committed to the values of inclusion and tolerance and our mission to provide health care to anyone who comes through our doors, regardless of where they come from.

The following staff stories bring to life many of our values:

  • Celebrating heritage
  • Patients seeking care without fear
  • Respecting and understanding a patient’s culture, background, and religion
  • Effectively communicating to patients who speak limited English
  • Breaking down medical jargon into plain language for patients

New Yorkers have always recognized that immigration means strength and renewal. We are either immigrants or have immigrant family members or ancestors who made their way here to create a better life for themselves and to make a positive contribution to the United States.

At NYC Health + Hospitals we will continue to honor these American values and we will continue to stand with our immigrant patients and employees.
