Health and Hospitals NYC runs the public hospital system in New York City. Their mission is to offer healthcare to any and all who walk through their doors regardless of their ability to pay. This means that fully a third of the patients (330,000 visits a year) are uninsured. And they speak over 140 languages. HH NYC needed to raise awareness of the availability of their services in the communities they work. The photos will be used in HH NYC's annual report and on their web site.
