Westchester Medical Center Health Network in Valhalla, N.Y., and Kingston, N.Y.-based HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley have partnered to enhance and expand healthcare for the Hudson Valley region.

Here are eight things to know about the partnership.

1. HealthAlliance is a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, effective immediately.

2. WMCHealth will be the sole corporate member of HealthAlliance and will oversee its hospital operations, as well as operations at other HealthAlliance facilities.

3. HealthAlliance and WMCHealth have a shared vision for the partnership, according to David Scarpino, president and CEO of HealthAlliance. That vision includes:

  • The continuation of critical-access and skilled-nursing services in Margaretville, N.Y.
  • The development of HealthAlliance Hospital: Mary's Avenue Campus in Kingston into a single hospital
  • The evolution of HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus in Kingston into a "medical village" concept to bring a variety of much-needed community ambulatory services under one roof

4. The evolutions of HealthAlliance Hospital: Mary's Avenue Campus and HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus are part of a "Healthy Neighborhood Initiative" collaboration between HealthAlliance and Kingston-area educational institutions, city and county agencies, community organizations and other local healthcare providers.

5. With a planned renovation and expansion and through collaboration with WMCHealth's strategic partner and international technology leader Royal Philips, HealthAlliance Hospital: Mary's Avenue Campus will provide surgical, diagnostic and therapeutic services through the use of advanced medical technologies, both parties said.

6. As far as the "medical village" concept, HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus will become a neighborhood focal point for health and human-service needs, with integrated primary care, behavioral health and outpatient services, according to a news release.

7. "This relationship with HealthAlliance furthers WMCHealth's goal of preserving and improving services in existing Hudson Valley healthcare facilities so local families can benefit from high-quality care close to home," Michael D. Israel, president and CEO of Westchester Medical Center Health Network, said in a prepared statement.

8. The partnership announcement comes after New York State recently announced nearly $1.2 billion in healthcare awards for hospitals and health systems in New York. Mr. Israel noted the grant awards are transformational for WMCHealth, with the infusion of $88.8 million for the Kingston campuses and $24.5 million toward the development of a "medical village."
