NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester, HRM Gala Honoree

We’re just a few days away from Gilded Splendor: A Hudson River Museum Gala. This year, we are reveling in 100 years of stewardship of our historic home, Glenview, and celebrating our outstanding honorees, who have strengthened our community and the HRM: Janet T. Langsam, CEO ArtsWestchester, artist Julia Santos Solomon, and NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester.

For over a century, NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester (formerly Lawrence Hospital) has been a pillar of health care for residents of Westchester County and the Bronx. Established in 1909 and located in Bronxville, it offers access to primary care physicians and specialists from ColumbiaDoctors, the faculty practice at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester.

NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester is deeply committed to the communities it serves and to supporting the area’s health and wellness needs. By collaborating with community-based organizations, schools, chambers of commerce, and faith-based organizations, the hospital aims to address social determinants of health through a wide range of innovative and targeted programs. One such program is NewYork-Presbyterian’s Community Fund, which provides grants to organizations in Westchester County to help residents facing social isolation, homelessness, and unemployment.

The hospital also supports the community’s young people and proudly sponsors the Hudson River Museum’s award-winning and impactful teen leadership Junior Docent Program, with a total of 80 students from all eight of Yonkers’s public high schools. With the support of NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester, and as a result of the annual College Readiness Initiative, our Junior Docent graduates received over $2,000,000 in scholarships to colleges where they were accepted. Since 2020, New York-Presbyterian has also funded the Westchester County Youth Bureau’s Summer Youth Experience Program (SYEP). SYEP is a six-week job training and mentorship program, and sixty youth from under-resourced communities in Westchester have benefited from it annually.

Under the leadership of Paul Dunphey, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester and President of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian is continuing to expand its footprint. In 2025, NewYork-Presbyterian will open a state-of-the-art multi-specialty ambulatory care center in White Plains. This center will provide world-class care from ColumbiaDoctors clinicians, ensuring patients across Westchester County have access to the best possible healthcare.
