NEW YORK — For the first time, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has officially identified the number of hospitals in the nation’s five largest metropolitan areas as a significant percentage of the health care system, according to a report released Thursday.
The U.N. report also says that New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Miami and Washington, D.C., are the largest metropolitan regions by population, while Atlanta, Miami, Houston and Washington D.D.C. are the second largest, according the report.
New York’s health system has been in the news in recent years, with the death of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio last year, and the city’s failure to pay for a new primary care doctor who is being held on a $3 million bond.
But the report does not include information on the number and type of hospitals within the city limits.
It says that information is available in the Office of the Inspector General’s report on the health system released last month.
It is also the first comprehensive report on a major metropolitan area, the report says.
The inspector general’s office said in its report that the city of New Yorkers has more than 3,000 medical facilities in its health system, about three times the number that are reported in the national report.
The report also said the health service has an estimated $3 billion in uncompensated care that is not covered by Medicaid or Medicare.
In an interview, the inspector general, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, said that the report is “a very important piece of evidence that shows we have a serious problem in the U, and that we need to address it in a serious way.”
The report says the health-care system is “over-regulated” and that “it is not clear how much this system should be controlled, or how much it should be reformed to better address the health needs of New Yorker families.”
It says the city has a budget of $7,500 for primary care and $5,400 for community health.
The report also points to a lack of patient care and says that patients can expect to see a shortage of providers and a shortage in services.
The department says that in a number of metropolitan areas, there are “significant undersupply or underutilization of services,” including in New Jersey at the state level, which it says has “substantial health care disparities” and has seen a “significant increase in patient wait times and unmet needs.”
