Dr. Mitchell Katz
President and CEO, NYC Health + Hospitals
Katz is overseeing a turnaround strategy at the large safety-net system that is largely focused on expanding access to primary care, streamlining administrative expenses, and improving its billing practices to try to get higher reimbursement rates from insurers. Early results of the effort have shown some promise. In May, Mayor Bill de Blasio put Katz in charge the city’s contact-tracing efforts for COVID-19.
