At White Plains Hospital, it is our mission to provide high-quality care. As part of this mission, we understand the importance of making our care accessible to all members of our community. For this reason, we have developed the Hispanic Outreach Program at WPHC.
José Alvarado, the first Hispanic ever elected to the Westchester County Legislature, is the Hospital's Hispanic community liaison and advisor to Jon B. Schandler, President & CEO. Externally, Legislator Alvarado serves as a liaison to the community so that the Hispanic/Latino population can better understand the services of the Hospital. Internally, he assists the Hospital and its staff in learning more about the healthcare needs of the Hispanic/Latino community.
The Hospital's Hispanic Outreach Program includes the following components:
- Partnerships with local Latino/Hispanic Organizations in Westchester County.
- Increasing our understanding of the needs of the Hispanic community.
- Greater involvement in Hispanic/Latino community events and activities.
- Hospital events designed to display the services and programs we offer to the Latino community.
- Spanish Club and Spanish Language classes at WPHC in order to improve the Spanish-speaking skills of our staff.
- Hiring bilingual practitioners.
- Increasing the number of bilingual publications and bilingual advertising.
- Assisting members of the Hispanic/Latino community to navigate care.
