The Open New York Health Facility General Information API is a service part of the State of New York's open data initiative. The API is meant to assist developers in creating health or healthcare related applications. The API provides access to a searchable dataset that holds general information on New York healthcare facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, treatment centers, long term healthcare programs, and hospices. Accessible information includes the location and contact information for facilities, filterable by city, state, county, zip code, phone number, type, and more.
