PAGNY Board of Directors Released Statement on Ebola Virus

The Board of Directors of the Physician Affiliate Group, of New York, P.C., along with our family of physicians and other PAGNY healthcare workers and support staff, pledge our commitment to join with the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC) to address the challenges presented by the Ebola virus. Containing Ebola is a compelling public health obligation. We are heartened by HHC’s commitment to provide training and the appropriate protective gear to enable our professional staff to competently and effectively protect the health and safety of all New Yorkers. The PAGNY professionals stand ready to work with our local, state and federal partners to implement any and all necessary measures to educate New Yorkers to avoid irrational fears, prevent the spread of the virus and most importantly, to care for those afflicted with the disease.
