Children’s & Women’s Physicians of Westchester renamed Boston Children’s Health Physicians

BOSTON (April 20, 2016)Boston Children’s Hospital today announced that Children’s & Women’s Physicians of Westchester (CWPW) has been renamed Boston Children’s Health Physicians (BCHP). CWPW became a member of Boston Children’s northeast pediatric network, an integrated network of care locations and partnerships, in July 2015.

BCHP is comprised of more than 276 physicians across 60 locations serving families throughout New York’s Metropolitan Area, the Hudson Valley, Connecticut and New Jersey. Boston Children’s northeast pediatric network is guided by the vision of providing a network of pediatric care locations and partnerships. Together, Boston Children’s and BCHP deliver the highest-quality care in local communities and makes investments to ensure accessibility, affordability and enhancement in pediatric health.

“BCHP will strengthen Boston Children’s northeast pediatric network, as well as our shared mission of caring for more children in more places than ever before,” said Sandra L. Fenwick, President and CEO of Boston Children’s Hospital. “We look forward to growing our collaboration and achieving our goals of providing the best care to patients and families in the region.”

BCHP physicians will continue to practice in the same locations, and access to local specialists will remain unchanged. The alliance allows for improved access to Boston Children’s extensive resources and as clinical collaborations grow, patients and families will benefit.

“We’re very excited about our relationship with Boston Children’s Hospital and equally enthusiastic about our new name and image,” said Leonard Newman, MD, President of Boston Children’s Health Physicians, LLP. “Our affiliation with Boston Children’s Hospital will facilitate us in providing an even higher level of care, and support access to some of the finest minds in pediatric medicine.”
