BCW Member NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital this week unveiled a new name to reflect its commitment to providing world-class care to the Westchester community: NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester.

The hospital said the re-branding provides clarity on its location, and more closely aligns with the names of other hospitals across the NewYork-Presbyterian enterprise. “With our new name, NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester, we are renewing our commitment to providing exceptional care to the community,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, President and Chief Executive Officer of NewYork-Presbyterian. “We are proud to be expanding our services across Westchester, making world-class care even more convenient and accessible for our patients and the communities we serve,” he added.

“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.” Dunphey was recently elected to the BCW Board of Directors.

For more than a century, NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester has delivered exceptional, comprehensive care close to home for Westchester residents. Founded in 1909, William Van Duzer Lawrence recognized the need for a strong community hospital when his son fell ill with appendicitis and had to be transported by baggage car to New York City. Following his son’s complete recovery, Lawrence purchased the land and donated the funds to build the hospital now known as NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester.

Today, the hospital continues to grow its footprint in the community, enhance its high-quality care, and expand health care services throughout the region. In July, NewYork-Presbyterian brought the hospital’s renowned Och Spine program to Westchester. 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.
