Chiefs at some of New York City's largest hospitals say that state cuts in Medicaid and other healthcare spending passed by the legislature would harm financially weak healthcare centers and could force even stronger ones to cut workers or care. State cuts total $143 million for New York City hospitals alone, according to the Healthcare Association of New York State, a trade group. It is the eighth substantial cut in aide by the legislature in the past two years, hospital officials said.
