As many longtime Westchester residents can attest, “a doctor in the city” is historically where we've turned when the diagnosis is dramatic. Over the past several years, there seems to have been a sea change in the Westchester medical scene. Local hospitals have teamed up with highly regarded medical centers in the city, and big names from Manhattan are spending at least some of their time in suburban offices. So, the question is: Has the supremacy of Manhattan medicine become a thing of the past? According to Arthur Klein, MD, president of the Mount Sinai Health Network, “There’s no need to travel to the city for less-acute issues, but some highly specialized services can only be provided in Manhattan most safely.” He added, “You can’t define healthcare globally as just one thing. There are two systems of health services, and they are complementary, not competitive.”
