Westchester Medical Center Foundation 1

Welcome to the Westchester Medical Center Foundation!

The Westchester Medical Center Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Westchester Medical Center (WMC) in Valhalla, NY.  We support Westchester Medical Center, the flagship of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network. WMC is a 415-bed academic hospital and is the base of tertiary and quarternary care for the region. The hospital provides life-saving, advanced care for residents in the Hudson Valley. Donations from generous people like you help support Westchester Medical Center’s ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare and supporting our community now and in the future.
