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.
The Bureau of Equitable Health Systems (BEHS) is a bureau in the Division for Center for Health Equity and Community Wellness at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) located at 42-09 28th Street, Long Island City, NY.
Our division is devoted to strengthening the Department’s ability to strategically partner with the NYC health care system. The bureau will engage primary care providers and other healthcare organizations to implement evidence-based strategies; leverage information to support planning and technical assistance for providers and payers; advance policy to close the racial equity gap for priority health outcomes; and surface opportunities where health care can influence and connect consumers to social support and address the whole person, beyond physical ailments. The Healthcare System Innovation and Support Team (HSIS) within BEHS operates NYC REACH, helping New York City providers to implement new health care delivery models and quality initiatives, participate in payment reform programs, and connect to community and health resources to support their patients.
