CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. -- Hudson Valley Hospital Center confirmed on Monday that it will be pursuing an affiliation with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in the latest in a series of hospital partnerships that have occurred in the region this year.
HVHC said that its Board of Directors has voted unanimously to pursue the affiliation, Victoria Hochman, HVHC's marketing and public relations, told Daily Voice late Monday afternoon.
"This new relationship would improve the already high level of healthcare practiced at our hospital and provide HVHC with the resources, leading edge technology and medical expertise to continue serving the community for many years to come," HVHC said in a brief statement provided to Daily Voice by Hochman.
NewYork-Presbysterian is also a partner with Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, which is now known as NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.
Mergers, acquisitions and partnerships within the hospital sector have been occurring at a rapid pace this year.
