Friends of White Plains Hospital


The purpose of the Friends of White Plains Hospital is to create awareness, provide volunteer services, and raise funds to benefit White Plains Hospital.

The Friends sponsor a wide array of programs, services and activities including:

  • the Caregiver Support Program
  • blood pressure screenings
  • scholarships for junior volunteers

Friends members make a huge, positive impact in our community by donating their time, talents, and treasures to White Plains Hospital!
Over the years, the Friends have raised more than $15 million for the Hospital making them the Hospital’s largest donor to date! The Friends funds projects—large and small that benefit patients, their families, and those who care for them. In the past, funds donated to the Hospital by the Friends have gone toward our caregivers program and most recently the Hospital's new Pediatric Center, among other initiatives.



The Friends Board is led by Co-Presidents, Wendy Berk and Kathy Winterroll, both residents of Scarsdale. If you have any questions about joining the Friends, or if you are interested in a personal guided tour of White Plains Hospital, please feel free to contact them directly or the Foundation Office at (914) 681-1040.
