Letter from the President and Chairman


Dear Friend,

A lot has been happening at Phelps over the past several months.

In November, after 25 years at the hospital’s helm, Keith Safian stepped down from his position as President & CEO. This change occurred shortly before Phelps joined the North Shore-LIJ Health System, becoming the system’s first hospital in Westchester County. It is exciting for us to be part of this superb organization, and we look forward to the benefits that the hospital and our community will realize from this relationship.

In February, the much-anticipated opening of our new SurgiCenter took place. The facility has exceeded all expectations in terms of functionality and patient comfort and satisfaction. The combination of the state-of-the-art facility and our outstanding surgical staff makes the Phelps SurgiCenter one of the top surgery centers in the region. 

We continue to expand Phelps Medical Associates, our primary care and multi-specialty medical group, with plans to establish practices at additional locations in the coming year.

In our roles as Chair of the Board and the new President & CEO, we look forward to working together to fulfill Phelps’ mission to serve the healthcare needs of our community. We wish you the best of health in the warm months to come.
