Health Equity Impact Assessment and Certificate of Need

White Plains Hospital has grown significantly over the past several years to meet the healthcare needs of its community, bringing in new physicians and additional services to support routine, emergent, and advanced care close to home. The Hospital recently engaged an independent firm to conduct a Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) as part of its Certificate of Need for the construction of an expansion project. While the Hospital has been focused on Health Equity for many years, after seeing how this new building will enhance access to care, 92% of those who participated in the HEIA survey were in favor of the project.
