If it’s a public hospital, such as one operated by the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation in New York City or Westchester Medical Center in the County of Westchester, a notice of claim is necessary.
The statute of limitations is also shorter against a public hospital.
You have 1 year and 90 days to bring a suit to a public hospital as opposed to 2½ years for a general medical malpractice claim.
