NYC’s New Health-Cost Watchdog Seen Saving City Up to $2 Billion

Abstract: However, a health-care think tank, Lown Institute, found that more than three quarters of the 1,773 nonprofit hospitals in the US it examined shortchanged communities by providing less charity care and investments than the value of their tax breaks. Its most recent Fair Share Spending report shows a total “fair share” deficit of $14.2 billion for those hospitals in 2020.
