Westchester Division

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's Westchester Division, established in 1894, is the second oldest free-standing psychiatric hospital in the country. With over 250 inpatient beds, and extensive outpatient, partial hospital, and day treatment programs, the Westchester Division provides a full continuum of care for children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly.

Highly specialized services provided by experts offer outstanding state-of-the-art treatment for a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses, including personality disorders, eating disorders, geriatric psychiatry, anxiety and mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and child and adolescent psychiatry. Patients benefit directly from the latest findings of our internationally-recognized research faculty.

The Westchester Division offers patient-centered, compassionate care for those seeking treatment and has been designated a "Planetree Designated Patient-Centered Hospital" -- the first behavioral health hospital in the U.S. and one of only 16 hospitals worldwide to receive this distinction. The program has been ranked consistently among the top departments of psychiatry in the country by numerous publications and surveys, as well as behavioral health care specialists, patients, and families.

Located in the city of White Plains in Westchester County, New York, we are 30 minutes from New York City by car or train. The hospital is on a historic, beautifully landscaped 200 acre campus specifically designed to offer a tranquil, restorative environment. To promote health and well-being for our patients, staff, and visitors, the Westchester Division is a smoke-free campus. Gracious buildings situated throughout the grounds, many of which retain their historic detail, provide dedicated space for therapeutic programs and recreational activities.
