New York City Mayors have long struggled with what to do with the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation ("HHC"). HHC is neither a city agency nor a department; nor is it a true public benefit corporation or authority. Given recent problems faced by HHC, like the AIDS crisis, evaporating public funding, a shrinking pool from which to hire employees, the movement to make HHC more accountable and connected with city government has grown. This article argues that to fully take advantage of the potential that HHC has, the opposite should be done: HHC should be allowed to vest complete control in its Board of Directors and Executive Officers, making them fully accountable. .
