Westchester Community Health Center today announced a partnership with Westchester Medical Center Health (WMCHealth) to provide our patients with a WMCHealth physical medicine doctor (physiatrist) and WMCHealth orthopedic surgeon at our Mount Vernon location. The WMCHealth healthcare providers will examine patients, capture x-rays and ultrasounds, and provide medical services on-site at the Westchester Community Health Center. If necessary, more complex musculoskeletal diagnostic and surgical procedures will be performed at Westchester Medical Center.
Judith Watson, CEO of Westchester Community Health Center, said the Orthopedic program could lead to WMCHealth providing a variety of specialty services at its other health center locations in Greenburgh-White Plains and Yonkers. “Having a long association with WMCHealth, I know that the commitment of their physicians and the quality of care they provide is second to none. Our patients deserve the best care, and that is what they will get with WMCHealth. For over 50 years, we have been providing quality health care. Partnering with WMCHealth will enable us to expand the range of medical services that we can offer to our communities.”
Said Michael D. Israel, President and Chief Executive Officer, WMCHealth, “The Westchester Community Health Center is a vital Mount Vernon resource, a resource with which WMCHealth has collaborated to provide COVID-19 vaccines as well as other healthcare services. Access to quality healthcare regularly is the key to prevention and early detection, two factors that weigh heavily on the overall quality of life for individuals and the community. We are thrilled to partner with the Westchester Community Health Center to offer these important services as well as access to higher levels of specialized care.’’
