We're in the process of losing the option of 12-hour shifts in my area and I noticed that more than 10 years ago many NYC area hospitals had made this change or were in the process (including Columbia/NY Presbyterian, SUNY, Maimonades, and NY methodist).
Did this stick? Are these hospitals still 8-hour only shifts?
If not, was anybody at any of these Hospitals around 1998 and knows the story?

Everyone I know works 12's, NYP, NYU, Bellevue, Mt Sinai, etc. Unless you are in ambulatory or psych.
