artworks 000515225592 2py301 t500x500Dr. Mitchell Katz is in charge of the city's public hospital system, which includes 11 hospitals and dozens of other facilities and clinics. Katz came to New York City Health + Hospitals to help turn around the struggling system, especially in terms of its finances, but also in its delivery of care. He recently spoke at Citizens Budget Commission breakfast, after which he joined the podcast to take a few questions -- this episode consists of that Q&A followed by Katz's remarks at the breakfast about what he's doing to change H+H, what progress has been made and what challenges persist.
