In the two years since White Plains Hospital partnered with Montefiore Health System, the synergy that has resulted from the collaboration has enabled us to provide our patients with more advanced services than ever—with the same personalized care—as well as the resources of a world-class academic institution.
Through the partnership, we are expanding the breadth of our advanced clinical services in areas such as cancer care, cardiac care, and specialty pediatrics. An example is bone marrow transplantation for cancer, which requires special facilities and support. Patients can receive a seamless coordination of care, with the transplant at Montefiore, and their pre- and post-transplant care at White Plains Hospital.
The number of clinical trials at White Plains Hospital has nearly doubled since 2015. More physicians in the Center for Cancer Care are serving as Principal Investigators for the trials than ever before. Through our partnership, patients also have access to more than 500 clinical trials now under way at Montefiore. Researchers from the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care have a presence in the White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care, facilitating their ability to run these trials for patients in Westchester.
White Plains Hospital and Montefiore routinely co-sponsor continuing medical education (CME) programs to advance educational development for cancer care professionals. Four CME programs took place in 2015 and five in 2016, including those focused on breast care and genetics; six are planned for 2017, including two highlighting advances in immunotherapy and the treatment of genitourinary cancers.
