Statement From NYC Health + Hospitals President and CEO Mitchell Katz, MD on Bruen Supreme Court Decision

Jun 23, 2022

“Every day our staff see the pain and death caused by guns. Today’s Supreme Court decision flies in the face of public health and common sense. As New York City’s public health care system, NYC Health + Hospitals has some of the busiest emergency departments and trauma centers in the city and the nation, and we care for far too many victims of gun violence. For years, we have worked to reduce gun violence in our communities, whether through interventions with violently injured patients at the hospital bedside, or through programming to deter acts of retaliation, support at-risk youth and stand up to violence. NYC Health + Hospitals stands committed to protecting our patients and staff from gun violence and the devastation it causes.”
