DOH Reports Progress on Berger Commission Implementation

DOH has issued a status report on its implementation of the Berger Commission recommendations. The Berger Commission report was published in November 2006. DOH is reporting that the majority of the affected hospitals and nursing homes impacted by the Commission's recommendation are "taking steps" to implement the mandates. They were helped by $362.3 million in HEAL-NY grants, out of the total $550 million that DOH has earmarked for Berger Commission implementation. DOH expects to announce awards for the balance of the HEAL-NY funds shortly.
