NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital Unveils New Name: NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester
NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital has unveiled a new name to reflect its commitment to providing world-class care to the Westchester community: NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester.
For more than a century, NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester has delivered exceptional, comprehensive care close to home for Westchester residents. Today, the hospital continues to grow its footprint in the community, enhance its high-quality care, and expand health care services throughout the region.
“NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester takes pride in our legacy of delivering high-quality care to our community,” said Paul J. Dunphey, senior vice president and chief operating officer at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester. “Our new name celebrates that rich history and makes clearer to our patients where they can access our world-class care.”
High-quality services close to home
Physicians from ColumbiaDoctors deliver exceptional care at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester in a wide range of specialties, including cardiovascular, oncology, neurology, pediatrics, women’s health and obstetrics, men’s health, orthopedics, urology, general and bariatric surgery and more, with new services arriving in the coming years. Home to a state-of-the art cancer center, patients can access personalized, compassionate care from Columbia physicians from the National Cancer Institute-designated Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and clinical trials. The hospital is equipped with cardiac catheterization laboratories for diagnostic imaging services and lifesaving treatments, as well as ambulatory surgery suites, operating rooms and an emergency department. A new advanced sports performance program features sports training, physical therapy, and rehabilitation services.
Expanding care in Westchester
In July, NewYork-Presbyterian brought the hospital’s renowned Och Spine program to Westchester. This program merges the world-class spine programs of Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine, giving the local community access to some of the world’s top orthopedic and neurosurgical spine surgeons and other spine care specialists to treat all types of back and neck problems, from the simple to the complex, using surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Och Spine at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester will offer additional clinical services, such as expanded physical therapy offerings, and will have dedicated single beds for spine patients who will be cared for by experienced clinical teams who focus solely on spine care.
NewYork-Presbyterian also recently purchased two connected office buildings in White Plains, which it will transform into a state-of-the-art, multi-specialty ambulatory care facility providing a broad range of ambulatory, primary and preventive care services to the communities of lower Westchester County. Featuring care from ColumbiaDoctors clinical teams across multiple disciplines, this new facility will give patients convenient access to increasingly in-demand specialties for adults and children, all close to home.
A commitment to the Westchester community
NewYork-Presbyterian continues to deepen its ties with the community and create a lasting impact. In 2021, NewYork-Presbyterian and Iona University announced the establishment a premier school of health sciences in Bronxville, the NewYork-Presbyterian Iona School of Health Sciences, offering a new vision for collaborative health care education, modern workforce development, and community care. The hospital also works with the Community Fund of Bronxville to offer free flu shots, and Feeding Westchester to address food insecurity by providing healthy meals for at-risk families. A collaboration with the Westchester Institute for Human Development supports young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through classes that teach life, work, and communication skills.
“Westchester is an amazing place to live and work, and we are so pleased to provide the very best care and deepen our already strong ties to this community,” said Dunphey.
