H+H doctors' push for pay parity gets backing from electeds

Posted 4/12/24

More than 60 elected officials have signed onto a letter calling on Mayor Eric Adams and NYC Health + Hospitals to settle a contract with resident physicians in the city’s public hospital system, who haven’t received raises in four years.

The physicians, who are represented by SEIU's Committee of Interns and Residents, say that NYC H+H has made an offer that would leave them the lowest earning physicians in the city. Currently, the physicians start at $66,247, and H+H has proposed a $76,984 salary for first-year residents, according to the union. The raise would mean that H+H residents would make, on average, $5,586 less than residents at private safety-net hospitals across the city.
