HHC's fiscal condition is troubled and should be a top priority for State and local leadership. In FY 2013, HHC ran a deficit of $668 million, and the gap is expected to worsen to $1.7 billion by FY 2018.

- Designing and implementing expenditure controls;
- Effectively managing MetroPlus;
- Adequately financing care for the uninsured; and,
- Creating a rational financial relationship with the City.
