White Plains Hospital and Montefiore Plan Partnership

White Plains Hospital is building a partnership with Montefiore Health System, which took over the former Sound Shore Hospital in November.

"Our vision is to build a regional network of hospitals and community physicians closely aligned in an integrated system of care," said Steven M. Safyer, MD, President and CEO of Montefiore, in a statement Feb. 6. "White Plains Hospital will serve as the center of that network to strengthen and expand our position as a healthcare leader in Westchester and the Hudson Valley.” 

The formalization of the new partnership will take several months to be finalized.  State applications will also need to be filed and approved, officials said.

"Montefiore is an academic medical center, with strong community values," Susan Fox, President, White Plains Hospital, said in the statement. "Our visions are aligned and we are excited about working closely with Montefiore and supporting the continued advancement of services provided close to home.”
