Several times a year, WPH partners with local organizations to provide services at both corporate and community health fairs. The fairs provide services in many specialties, including but not limited to: screening for diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, breast and prostate cancer, eye, ear, stroke risk, HIV screening, sickle cell disease, and cholesterol.
In addition, WPH hosts a Ted E. Bear Fair for children in our Emergency Department. The goal is to ease children’s fear of the hospital and help them become acquainted with physicians, staff, and what happens behind the scenes.
Healthy Community Initiative (HCI)
The mission of the Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) is to positively impact the overall health of our community in a holistic way, working with municipal, community and private partners to create programs that focus on prevention and overall wellbeing. This collaborative effort was founded by White Plains Hospital in partnership with the city of White Plains, White Plains School District, the Ministers Fellowship Council and the White Plains Housing Authority. Additional HCI members include Calvary Baptist Church, El Centro Hispano, Inc., Feeding Westchester, the Thomas H. Slater Center, White Plains Youth Bureau and the YWCA. Together, we offer free programs and resources promoting healthy behaviors and disease prevention. We aim to empower individuals with the tools they need to take better care of themselves and their families to lead longer, healthier lives.
