New York City is home to the largest public healthcare system in the US, world-class private medical centers, and a robust, cutting-edge R&D landscape.

The health of healthcare in NYC is vital for the city’s economy and for the well-being and livelihood of all New Yorkers.

Promoting Healthcare in NYC

NYCEDC creates and oversees initiatives to foster innovation, help small businesses, and develop infrastructure in the city’s healthcare industry:

  • The Community Health Center Expansion Program provides grant support to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in New York City looking to expand. The program helps health centers committed to delivering primary and preventive care services to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay or their immigration status.
  • The Digital Health Breakthrough Network gives early-stage startups the opportunity to generate data they need to improve their technologies and launch into their next stage of growth. Startups collaborate with NYC-based healthcare providers quickly and affordably to source pilot studies. These studies help produce the data necessary to refine prototypes or seek early clients and investors.
