White Plains Hospital Breaks Ground on Outpatient Center

White Plains Hospital (WPH) officially broke ground Monday on a pivotal addition to its campus today, a 252,000 square-foot, 9-story outpatient center for advanced medicine and surgery, located at the corner of Maple and Longview Avenues, adjacent and connected to both the main Hospital and the Center for Cancer Care.

The facility is one of the most significant additions to the Hospital’s ongoing campus transformation, which has also included extensive campus modernization and renovation, such as the expanded Center for Cancer Care, completed in 2016, and the Hospital’s new lobby and inpatient tower, completed in 2015. Since 2015, approximately square feet have been renovated or added to the Hospital. The new project is estimated to cost approximately $272 million.

“White Plains Hospital continues to raise the bar on what it means to deliver the highest quality care in settings that are tailored to patients and their families,” said Steven M. Safyer, MD, president and CEO, Montefiore Medicine. “This new location represents the very best Montefiore has to offer, passionate physicians, who are leaders in their fields with access to cutting-edge research from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, backed by the most modern technology available today.”

The new advanced center will house new operating rooms, endoscopy suites, cutting-edge imaging, wound care delivered through hyperbaric chambers, and specialty physician practices including: orthopedics, spine, maternal fetal medicine, neurosurgery, and a Heart and Vascular Center.

“The new center is an exciting step in White Plains Hospital’s transformation into the leading tertiary care hub for patients in Westchester County and beyond,” explained Susan Fox, President and CEO of White Plains Hospital. “Inside, we will deliver a seamless patient experience and offer ease and convenience for accessing additional advanced ambulatory services and procedures.” Ms. Fox continued, “The growth and vitality of White Plains Hospital has been a key driver in attracting top medical talent from major teaching and research hospitals in New York. Our medical staff has grown significantly, and we have added or expanded in key specialties such as oncology, interventional cardiology, neurosurgery, hepatobiliary surgery, electrophysiology and orthopedics.”

Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester, said that the project was not only a win for patients who now had access to advanced care close to home, but to Westchester County has a whole which will benefit by the jobs created, and the stimulus to economic development.

“The transformation of White Plains Hospital over the past five years has been a major win for all of Westchester County,’’ said Gordon. “It has been an integral part of the revitalization now under way in the City of White Plains, and we are excited to see what the future brings.’’

The facility will also be a job creator for the County. In 2018, White Plains Hospital supported 6,264 jobs through a combination of direct employment (3,034) at the Hospital and its satellites, and indirect job creation (3,230) for supply and equipment vendors, contractors, laborers, and in local businesses that support the Hospital’s workforce and visitors. The new project is expected to bring a 9% growth in new jobs over the four-year period. In the City of White Plains in 2018, WPH supported or sustained 2,605 jobs, accounting for 1 in every 36 jobs within the City, either directly or indirectly. By the end of construction, the impact on the City of White Plains is projected to be 2,869 jobs, of which 441 will be attributed to the new center.
