STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR HOCHUL’S 2022 STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS
By John DiPreta, MD, President, New York State Society of Orthopaedic Surgeons
"Governor Hochul’s State of the State address was a thoughtful and hopeful articulation of the opportunities that abound in New York State when our government acts not as a barrier to progress, but as a partner in achieving it.
“The Governor made clear that health care is among her top priorities in the new year. Many challenges await her within that arena, as do many perspectives. We are hopeful that her policy and budget priorities will be founded on demonstrable, evidence-based approaches to care provision that will best ensure New Yorkers have access to the highest quality care delivered by the most qualified professionals.
“The New York State Society of Orthopaedic Surgeons will remain committed to being a productive partner and technical resource to the Governor and her team as, together, we address the challenges before us.”
