Senator Jack M. Martins recently delivered a speech to the staff at Winthrop University Hospital.
“Whether it’s through the use of hi-tech innovations, performing open heart surgery, or providing newborn services, the staff at Winthrop has faithfully provided quality care to our friends and neighbors for over 100 years,” he said during the speech. “Healthcare remains a priority in our state. The budget implements reforms in order to make Medicaid in New York State more efficient.”
Senator Martins spoke about the amendments to Medicaid that were included in the budge, including a cap on the future rate of growth of Medicaid spending.
