The head of New York City’s public hospital system says he will leave more jobs unfilled at the 11 hospitals he oversees to cope with a cash-flow crisis that emerged after the state withheld millions in aid. City and state officials have sparred over the funding in recent days as healthcare dollars from Washington become scarce. Stanley Brezenoff, interim president of NYC Health + Hospitals, said in a letter to staff on Thursday that he would fill just 25% of the 250 to 300 positions that become available each month at the hospitals the system oversees.
