WMCHealth Announces Partnership With Westchester Community Health Center

Judith Watson, CEO of Westchester Community Health Center joins with Michael D. Israel, President and Chief Executive Officer, WMCHealth for ribbon-cutting ceremony held Wednesday at the center in Mount Vernon.

Continuing its effort to increase healthcare access and equity for all, BCW Member Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth) announced this week a new partnership with BCW Member Westchester Community Health Center, formerly known as Mount Vernon Neighborhood Health Center.

Through this partnership, patients of Westchester Community Health Center can receive care from a WMCHealth physical medicine doctor (physiatrist) and WMCHealth orthopedic surgeon at a location convenient for them. 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.

The Westchester Community Health Center partnership is just one of several new partnerships WMCHealth is cultivating with community-based health organizations.

“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,“ said Michael D. Israel, President and Chief Executive Officer, WMCHealth.

Judith Watson, CEO of Westchester Community Health Center, said the 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.“
