Fees and Deliverable

This exhibit depicts hospitals identified for reconfiguration in New York State in the Final Report of the New York State Commission on Health Care Facilities in the 21st Century, December, 2006. As the map indicates New York State hospital inpatient use varies significantly by zip code community. Consequently the impact of acute care bed reconfiguration must be examined at that level.
