Squad 8/H+H is the Inspector General for New York City Health + Hospitals, the City’s public healthcare system, which operates 11 hospitals, 5 long-term care/rehabilitation facilities, and multiple neighborhood health centers. Squad 8 conducts long-term investigations to prevent Health + Hospitals employees and healthcare providers who work with the system and its subsidiaries from defrauding Health + Hospitals and its wholly-owned subsidiary MetroPlus, which provides health insurance to City residents and employees. The squad also works with law-enforcement partners to stop Health + Hospitals’ employees and providers from operating “pill mills” and engaging in narcotics trafficking.
