Since then, our beloved White Plains Hospital has been transformed, operating at a capacity we never thought imaginable as we do everything possible to fight this invisible enemy.WP1

Our doctors, nurses, and staff are on the front lines, risking their lives every day, and exhibiting an unforgettable display of selflessness, dedication, and compassion in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We need your help now more than ever as the number of cases continues to climb.
