We pride ourselves on our renowned Pediatric Endoscopy and Gastroenterology Program. Our team of healthcare professionals is committed to putting patients first, serving Westchester County as well as areas as far as New York City and New Haven, Connecticut.

A Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
NWH commitment to patient-centered care defines the way in which gastroenterologists and nurses work as a team to coordinate seamless care that anticipates your needs, and ensures your comfort.
For patients suffering from anxiety before a procedure, NWH’s Integrative Medicine Program is staffed by experienced holistic health nurses, who can help to alleviate anxiety and help to create an environment of calm and wellness.
A Team Approach
Fundamental to healthcare at NWH is a team approach among our medical staff. For example, there is seamless coordination with our NWH Radiology Department; the Interventional Radiologist may be brought in to treat a condition diagnosed in endoscopy, thus avoiding surgery or a more invasive procedure.
