Brooklyn Politicians Ask Maimonides CEO for Town Hall to Address Concerns

By Hamodia Staff

BORO PARK — Leading Brooklyn political figures in the area serviced by Maimonides Medical Center have called on Maimonides CEO Ken Gibbs to join a town hall style meeting to engage with community residents who have raised complaints about mismanagement and the decreasing level of patient care in the hospital.

Responding to a request for comment from Hamodia, a Maimonides spokesperson stated that the complaints are false and unwarranted, and insinuate that this is an attempt to undermine the board of directors of the hospital. In addition, management stated that the “efforts of our nurses, doctors, administrators, and staff … have been nothing short of heroic over the past two years,” and the “quality of care at Maimonides … has continued to earn national recognition for outstanding clinical outcomes.”

Recent advertisements in local print media have criticized Maimonides management, while Maimonides has taken out advertisements extolling the services they provide their clients.

As to whether Gibbs would grant the requested town hall, the spokesperson said Gibbs “is responding directly to the local officials.”
