WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Mount Kisco Medical Group (MKMG), a multi-specialty practice serving Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties, announced Wednesday an expansion of its existing clinical affiliation agreement with the Mount Sinai Health System, increasing the commitment of both parties to providing integrated and coordinated care for the communities they serve.
The physicians and leadership from both Mount Sinai and MKMG will work together to define and deliver best practices in coordinated and continuous care. The relationship will include clinical service enhancement and coordination, research and education.
Mount Sinai and MKMG will also cooperate on developing Centers of Excellence in select specialties. The Mount Kisco Medical Group will continue to operate as an independent entity.
“As an integrated health system, the Mount Sinai Health System strives to provide high quality, accessible care, and we’re pleased that the nationally renowned Mount Kisco Medical Group will partner with us in those efforts,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, chief executive officer and president of the Mount Sinai Health System. “We look forward to working with our new partners at MKMG in furthering our goals of enhancing clinical care, as well as medical education and research.”
Scott D. Hayworth, MD president and CEO of the Mount Kisco Medical Group, echoes Davis' sentiments.
“As a leading provider of ambulatory care in the Northeast, MKMG is pleased to partner with a nationally ranked institution to continue providing outstanding, cost-effective care to our patients,” said Hayworth.
“This relationship is consistent with our strategy to partner with best in class institutions as we continue to address the dynamic changes in healthcare.”
