Disproportionate Share Hospital $$$

  1. Does anyone know if any of the hospitals in the NYC area are Disporportionate Share Hospitals (see definition below)? The reason I ask is because The US Dept. of HHS offers nursing education loan repayment for people who work in a disproportionate share hospital.

    definition: a hospital that 1) has a disproportionately large share of low-income patients and 2) receives a) an augumented payment from the States under Medicaid or b) a payment adjustment from Medicare.
