Legislators Meet With TBHC's Leadership Team To Discuss 'Building Brooklyn’s Future'December 2, 2016
On Thursday, December 1, 2016, legislators visited The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) to talk with Gary G. Terrinoni, President and Chief Executive Officer and other members of the hospital leadership team to talk about “Building Brooklyn’s Future,” plans for future growth, and potential hospital state funding.
Back in September, TBHC applied for the New York state health care facility transformation program grant. The transformation grant approval means millions of dollars dedicated to updating hospital infrastructure, primarily addressing four projects and enabling TBHC to continue to serve Brooklyn’s medically underserved patient population.
This major renovation will give residents improved access to local care, and meet the growing health care needs of neighborhoods undergoing tremendous demographic changes and the unprecedented growth in downtown, northern and central Brooklyn.
The raising of the funds for TBHC’s future would include a much-needed expansion and upgrading of the Emergency Department services as well as the expansion of community–based physician practices and health centers.
