NYCEDC and DOHMH Look to Public Health Community for Ideas to Strengthen Health Infrastructure

NEW YORK, NY — Today, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene[1] (DOHMH) issued a Request for Information (RFI) to the public health community for ideas to 1) strengthen the City’s health infrastructure by informing the design of the recently announced Pandemic Response Institute[2] and its initial focus areas and 2) advance health equity in NYC, which is critical to health emergency response. The RFI builds on the Administration’s long-term recovery agenda, which places public health at the center of the City’s recovery.

“Public health is at the center of our recovery and for it to be successful, we must strengthen the City’s health infrastructure,” said James Patchett, President and CEO of New York City Economic Development Corporation. “As we look to position the New York City as a national leader in pandemic response and deliver better health outcomes for all New Yorkers, the insights and expertise of our public health and community leaders will be critical. It is why we are engaging in this process, which ensures we are better prepared for any future health emergency and that our city is stronger for generations to come.”
