"Over the past several years, White Plains Hospital has been actively redefining community health care," said Susan Fox, President, White Plains Hospital.   "Advances in technology and medicine, and recruitment of expert physicians have allowed us to increase our level of services and keep care local." "Montefiore is an academic medical center, with strong community values.   Our visions are aligned and we are excited about working closely with Montefiore and supporting the continued advancement of services provided close to home."

Ranked among the best in the nation, Montefiore has several notable Centers of Excellence including the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, the Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care, and the Montefiore Einstein Center for Transplantation.
