The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.
DOHMH received funding through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Infectious Diseases (ELC) Cooperative Agreement for adjusting community mitigation in response to COVID-19.
DOHMH's Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response (OEPR) was created to promote DOHMH's and NYC's ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from health emergencies. OEPR coordinates agency- and healthcare system-wide planning, exercises and training, evaluation, information sharing, operations and logistics, and coordinating with healthcare partners, community stakeholders, city, state and federal partners. OEPR's work focuses on promoting and protecting public health through emergency preparedness and response; and recognizes that social inequities negatively impact our efforts to maintain and improve the health of NYC during and after a disaster. With these inequities in mind, OEPR is also working to improve its application of a social justice and racial equity lens to its emergency preparedness and response work. OEPR's efforts to combat the harmful effects of systemic injustices on communities focuses on working towards the most equitable post-disaster public health outcomes possible.
DOHMH has an opening for a Healthcare System Capacity Manager. Reporting to the Senior Director of Healthcare Operations, the Healthcare System Capacity Manager will develop, implement, and assess relationships with healthcare delivery facilities, institutions, and associations throughout NYC. The Healthcare System Capacity Manager will support monitoring and management of healthcare system capacity and support connecting facilities with resources such as staffing, personal protective equipment (PPE), and public health guidance while engaging in meaningful stakeholder engagement to share best practices in healthcare emergency management.
