COUNCIL MEMBER DARLENE MEALY’S STATEMENT ON SUNY DOWNSTATE/MAIMONIDES COLLABORATION
“Quality, affordable healthcare has always been a cornerstone principle of my tenure at the New York City Council. This new collaborative partnership between two of Brooklyn’s premier healthcare institutions – SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Maimonides Hospital – is a welcome addition to providing top-notch medical services and care to residents of my District, and the wider Brooklyn population. Taking aim at cancer and drawing on the collective experiences of both institutions is a win-win outcome that can only enhance the quality of life for all Brooklynites, especially our senior citizens community, and those suffering from cancer.
“I applaud, support and welcome this partnership and its potential to be a true ‘Cancer Center of Excellence” for all of us.”
