An academic hospital affiliated with New York Medical College, Westchester Medical Center provides advanced medical care to the residents of New York's Westchester County, along with surrounding communities in the Hudson Valley. The tertiary care hospital features a trauma center and an organ transplant program; it also provides highly specialized care in areas such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke. In addition to some 400 adult hospital beds, the facility contains the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital (with 114 beds), an inpatient psychiatric facility with 100 beds, and a short-term rehabilitation unit. Additionally, its Taylor Care Center provides skilled nursing to long-term residents.
Westchester Medical is focused on making its Maria Fareri Children's Hospital one of the premier hospitals for advanced children's healthcare in the nation. In 2011 it brought in a new head of pediatric hematology and oncology. The hospital also has plans to expand the children's facility to 150 -- and eventually 200 -- beds. – less
