Brooklyn Hospitals Under Fire
Health Care That Works has merged race and income demographic data from the census with data on New York hospital closures and downsizing. Their research shows that recent hospital closures have had a disproportionate impact on communities of color - six of the eight hospitals that closed between 1995 and 2005 were located in or near communities of color. Their website links to a plethora of reports and other resources.
