Lawrence Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Join Forces to Advance Care in Westchester County

Jul 1, 2014
Lawrence Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital have established a new relationship aimed at enhancing care, improving access, and lowering health care costs for residents of Bronxville and surrounding communities in Westchester County. Lawrence has been renamed NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital.
"We are pleased to join with the Lawrence Hospital leadership, trustees, doctors, and staff to expand services and enhance quality of care for residents of Westchester County," said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, chief executive officer of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "The new relationship offers opportunities to expand preventive services, ambulatory care, and primary care programs in these communities, as well as provide enhanced access to the advanced specialty care offered at our six campuses in Manhattan and White Plains. It will also provide more convenient access for residents who already seek care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's Manhattan locations."
"We are excited," said Edward M. Dinan, president and chief executive officer at Lawrence Hospital. "The Board of Governors vetted its options and reached the unanimous conclusion that joining forces with NewYork-Presbyterian would bring extraordinary benefit to the communities we serve. We're seeing that already in the commitment to move cardiac catheterization into Lawrence for the first time, and there is more to come. We could not have picked a better partner with more focus on enhancing care than NewYork-Presbyterian."
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, based in New York City, is one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive hospitals, with some 2,600 beds among its six campuses. The hospital is committed to excellence in patient care, research, education and community service. NewYork-Presbyterian is the #1 hospital in the New York metropolitan area and is consistently ranked among the best academic medical institutions in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. The hospital has academic affiliations with two of the nation's leading medical colleges: Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Established in 1909, NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital, located in Bronxville, New York, serves residents of southern Westchester County and the Bronx. The 291-bed acute-care facility provides emergency care to approximately 42,000 individuals and delivers nearly 2,000 babies each year. Additional support and care is provided to the community through Lawrence Medical Associates, a multispecialty physician practice with extended hours and offices in convenient locations, and Lawrence Community Health Services, which offers home care, hospice, and bereavement services to adults and children. The hospital became an affiliate member of the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System in 2005. For more information, visit www.nyp.org/lawrence.
