In January 2015, NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital entered a new chapter in its 126-year history by partnering with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, one of the nation’s most comprehensive academic health care delivery systems, and became affiliated with the NewYork-Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network. New York-Presbyterian is based in New York City and, in collaboration with two renowned medical schools, Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, is consistently recognized as a leader in medical education, ground-breaking research and innovative, patient-centered clinical care. Each year, nearly 29,000 New York Presbyterian medical and health care professionals deliver exceptional care to more than two million patients.
NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital is the first hospital in the region to have earned the Magnet Award for Nursing Excellence and the only hospital in the region to earn it twice, in 2010 and 2013. It is going for a third award in early 2016. The Joint Commission also recognized the hospital twice in recent years as a “Top Performer on Key Quality Measures,” and key patient and employee satisfaction metrics led to six awards to date from Press Ganey, including the “Guardian of Excellence Award” and the “Success Story Award.”
From its Cortlandt Manor campus, NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital offers the convenience of a community hospital with access to leading-edge medicine and world renowned physicians. The128-bed facility is a fully accredited, non-profit hospital serving patients and their families with quality health care through a growing team of more than 350 physicians and 1,300 employees. An expansion in 2010 added 133,000 square feet of space to the hospital, including a four-story patient tower with all private rooms, and also doubled the size of the No-Wait Emergency Department, which sees some 40,000 patients a year. Upcoming projects will result in a completely new and modern Maternity Center and additional Emergency Room space, enhancements and renovations.
