Community hospitals in New York City hold a unique position in this turbulent era.

Advances in healthcare technology have enabled a large number of complex procedures to take place in an outpatient service setting. The primary purpose of this project was to investigate the economic performance of community hospitals in New York City that provided general and acute healthcare services from 2001 to 2010.
