At Northern Westchester Hospital we strive to meet ALL our patients' needs—not just their medical requirements. We measure our success by our patients' satisfaction. Holistic therapies, such as aromatherapy and massage, are soothing and can mitigate pain, fear and stress. We believe kindness and compassion are a meaningful part of caregiving.
While expertise and technology are the cornerstones of our medical center, it can be the smallest moments that make the biggest impression. We serve our breast cancer patients best by listening and learning what is most important to them.
