NYC DEPT OF HEALTH/MENTAL HYGIENE
OPEN TO PERMANENTS OR THOSE WHO ARE REACHABLE ON THE CIVIL SERVICE LIST OF ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGER CIVIL SERVICE LIST ARE ELIGIGLE TO APPLY
The Center for Health Equity & Community Wellness (CHECW) uses a racial and social justice approach to eliminate health inequities for those who are most marginalized in New York City and to reduce overall premature mortality from the leading causes of preventable death with the vision that every New Yorker will live in a thriving neighborhood with equitable access to resources that help support healthy individuals and communities. This division unifies and strengthens the Department’s lines of work directed at eliminating racial inequities for preventable health conditions, which are rooted in historical and contemporary injustices and discrimination, including racism. The Bureau of Equitable Health Systems (BEHS) is the healthcare systems bureau of DOHMH situated within CHECW and supporting the strategic plan and vision of the Chief Medical Officer. Our mission is to apply policy, evidence, and practical expertise to improve equity in health care delivery at the individual, organizational, financing, and systems levels. We aim to operationalize the Board of Health’s resolution of Racism as a Public Health Crisis by addressing structural racism and intersectional inequities embedded within the healthcare delivery system. The mortality experienced due to COVID-19 made visible the inequities that many New Yorkers experience in accessing the healthcare system; as well as the marginalization of essential health workers. As we move forward towards an equitable COVID-19 recovery, we need to develop innovative solutions to improve the performance, equity, and efficiency of the healthcare delivery system.
