NewYork-Presbyterian, in collaboration with physicians from Columbia University Irving Medical Center, has launched a state-of-the-art sports medicine and performance training facility in Westchester County that gives patients and athletes access to some of the nation’s top sports medicine doctors, therapists, and elite sports performance coaches–all at a single location.
The NewYork-Presbyterian Sports Performance Institute is a 9,600-square-foot facility located at 693 White Plains Road in the Vernon Place Shops in Scarsdale that brings together sports medicine physicians and surgeons, physical therapists, advanced practice providers, and performance coaches to provide comprehensive and collaborative care for athletes. The Institute’s services cater to athletes of all ages and skill levels, from high school athletes, to weekend warriors, and elite professionals–whether they are looking to enhance their performance, recover from a recent injury and return to sport, or receive medical care to heal a recent injury or relieve pain from a chronic condition. Sports performance training services are powered by EXOS, a national leader in proactive health and performance.
Overseeing the Institute are: Dr. William Levine, the Frank E. Stinchfield Professor and Chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Chief of Orthopedics at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and head team physician for Columbia University Athletics; Dr. Christopher Ahmad, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Chief of Sports Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and head team physician for the New York Yankees and New York City Football Club; and Dr. Jeffrey Geller, the Nas S. Eftekhar Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.
BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon who attended Tuesday’s opening along with NYP dignitaries and Yankee Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera, said the new center would provide a unique, new service to Westchester residents.
“The healthcare industry continues to grow in our county, which is not only good for the health of our residents, but the health of our economy,’’ said Gordon. “Congratulations to NewYork Presbyterian on the opening of this beautiful, new healthcare facility.’’
