The Healthcare and Life Sciences Ecosystem is the anchor of Westchester’s economy. How is the WCA helping grow this $15 billion industry?

A Complex Ecosystem

A vibrant healthcare industry has helped make Westchester the region’s best place to live, work and play by driving our economy and keeping our families healthy. Now more than ever there is an urgent need to address the regulatory uncertainty and misaligned incentives that threaten to negatively impact healthcare providers, employers, and patients.

Supporting Westchester’s Largest Economic Driver

Through the WCA Healthcare Advisory Board, comprised of leaders from world-renowned healthcare systems and physician practices, the WCA advocates for legislative policies that protect the foundation of our healthcare ecosystem. The WCA also serves to brand the region as a major hub of innovation through its world-class conferences and marketing efforts.
