Local & Surrounding Hospitals

River House residents are blessed with a large number of leading hospitals in the immediate and surrounding area including:

Hudson Valley Hospital Center, located on Route 202, just across the Peekskill border in Cortlandt Manor. The award winning Hudson Valley Hospital Center recently expanded with new and improved features and facilities.

The hospital’s newest, or soon-to-debut, components include a patient tower, no-wait emergency room, operating center and cancer center. It is also proud of its new Women’s Pavilion for Birthing and its new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Other highlights include an open MRI unit, a 16-slice CAT Scan unit and virtual colonoscopy technical equipment for less invasive screening for colorectal cancer. Light and airy, and decorated in a pleasing color palette with art work by area artists, HVHC sports a hotel-like atmosphere supporting the concept that pleasant surroundings foster healing and recovery (www.hvhc.org). There are also expanded parking facilities in selected areas of the complex.

The Wellness Club, an affiliate of the Hudson Valley Hospital Center, is located offsite in the nearby Cortlandt Town Center on Route 6. The popular “gym” features treadmills and other exercise equipment, plus a variety of programs to enhance health and wellness. Classes range from yoga to boxing, and from stress management to nutritional information (526-2366).

Other nearby hospitals include: Northern Westchester Hospital Center, Mount Kisco (www.nwhc.net): Phelps Memorial Hospital Center, located on Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow (www.phelpshospital.org); and Westchester Medical Center, located in Valhalla (www.wcmc.com).
