Foundation Board of Directors

Jonathan Spitalny—White Plains Hospital Foundation Board ChairDear friends and patrons,

Here at White Plains Hospital, healthcare has evolved over the years. We have always been on the leading edge of this evolution. When the Hospital opened in 1893, it had no operating rooms or laundry facilities, just one mission—to provide care to those in need. Today, the Flanzer Emergency Department is the busiest in Westchester County, with 64,000 patient visits a year.

The list of milestones and medical innovations at the Hospital goes on and on, but one important fact remains the same—patients need quality healthcare, close to home. Your dollars today fund the remedies of tomorrow. Thank you for your steadfast support!
