In a significant announcement affecting the region’s healthcare community, Empire BlueCross BlueShield and Montefiore Health System reached a new agreement this week focused on improving the access to quality healthcare for people throughout New York City, Westchester and the Hudson Valley.

The multi-year agreement, which continues the longstanding relationship between the two organizations, features several new community outreach initiatives. They include health events, a partnership to support nutrition services for at-risk populations, and a mobile health unit to deliver essential testing and screening focused on improving the health of the community.

“We are on a mission to materially and measurably improve the health of all New Yorkers, and we know there are many critical healthcare needs in the Bronx, which ranks 62 out of New York’s 62 counties for health outcomes,” said Alan Murray, President, Empire BlueCross BlueShield.

“Our new agreement with Empire BlueCross BlueShield is built on our mutual commitment to the communities we serve, and sets us on a continued path forward, together, to serve our patients,” said Colleen Blye, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Montefiore Health System.
