NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital (commonly known as Lawrence Hospital and formerly known as Lawrence Hospital Center) is a general hospital located in Bronxville, New York that provides inpatient and outpatient care primarily to residents of southern Westchester County. It was founded in 1909 as Lawrence Hospital by prominent businessman William Van Duzer Lawrence, whose name the hospital bears, following the near-death of his son, Dudley, while en route to a hospital in New York City. The hospital annually treats 36,000 patients in its emergency department and delivers around 2,000 babies. Today, it is affiliated with Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and, as of 2015, has 400 physicians, 88% of whom are board certified, with a total of 1,100 employees. It is recognized for excellence in orthopedics, obstetrics, oncology, and cardiology.[1]

In 2005, Lawrence Hospital Center became an affiliate member of the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System and in 2014 entered into a new partnership which resulted in the hospital being renamed NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital.[2] Groundbreaking of a two-story, 40,000 sq. ft. cancer and surgery center occurred on June 18, 2013, whose construction cost $65 million.[3] The center opened on November 21, 2016.[4]
