White Plains Hospital (WPH) is a 292-bed community hospital with 1900 employees that has been serving the Westchester area and its environs since 1893. Although classified as a community hospital, WPH, with more than 700 members on its medical and dental staff, offers some levels of service normally found in large academic medical centers. The Hospital is a six-time winner of the Consumer Choice Award for Westchester County, given by the National Research Corporation.
In addition to a wide array of acute care services, there are several programs worthy of special mention because of the depth and quality of treatment they provide.
The Ruth and Jerome A. Siegel Stroke Center
This stroke center was the first one in the County designated by the New York State Department of Health. It recently received the American Stroke Association's Annual Achievement Award for its success in implementing a high standard of stroke care.
The Westchester Orthopaedic Institute
The care delivered by this partnership between the Hospital and many of its orthopedic surgeons is renowned for the scope of its services that range from pre-op education to follow-up care after surgery for a wide array of bone, joint and spine conditions. More hip and knee replacement surgeries have been performed at WPH than at any other hospital in Westchester.
The William & Sylvia Silberstein Neonatal and Maternity Program
A redesigned and refurbished Labor & Delivery unit, backed up by a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit—the highest designation available to a community hospital—is part of the reason why this program leads the County in deliveries year after year.
The Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center
The only freestanding outpatient oncology treatment program in the County anchors a wide range of oncology services that include a linear accelerator for radiation therapy, as well as a state-of-the-art infusion center for chemotherapy and other intravenous treatments. The Dickstein Center is part of the Hospital's Cancer Program, which received the Outstanding Achievement Award for the American College & Surgeons Commission on cancer.
Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory
Our new cardiac catheterization laboratory, in partnership with Columbia University's Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy, is one of the few places in Westchester where you can receive diagnostic coronary angiograms. The lab also offers testing and treatment for arrhythmias. In our newly renovated, non-invasive cardiovascular testing facilities, we also perform nuclear imaging and digital stress echocardiograms, as well as 64-slice CT scans.
