Scarsdale Medical Group and White Plains Hospital signed a partnership agreement that will result in what the health care partners called a “seamless coordination of care” between the two Westchester-based providers.
“During this transformative time in health care, finding the right partner to align with is essential to ensuring high quality, coordinated care for our community,” said Dr. Kenneth Croen, managing partner of Scarsdale Medical Group. “White Plains Hospital is the right partner for our future.”
Susan Fox, president and CEO of White Plains Hospital, said that for years, the two organizations have benefited from a very strong relationship and have collaborated closely on patient care. “We are so pleased to be partnering in a more official capacity with this group of outstanding and skilled physicians,” she added.
Founded in 1957, Scarsdale Medical Group has offices in Scarsdale, Harrison and Eastchester and more than 50 physicians who provide primary care and a range of medical specialties. White Plains Hospital, a member of Montefiore Health System, has recently undergone a campus transformation and geographic expansion, with 17 satellite facilities across the county.
“Both White Plains Hospital and Scarsdale Medical Group have strong roots in this community and an incredible commitment to the highest-quality, patient-focused care,” said Larry Smith, chairman of the White Plains Hospital board of directors. “This partnership is a natural fit and represents a very positive development for health care in our community.”
