Establishing Our Ossining Open Door Community Health Campus

The Need

Since our beginnings in the basement of the First Baptist Church in 1972, our footprint in the heart of downtown Ossining has grown to more than 40,000 square feet. Due to an increase in patients and staff, these key Northern Westchester locations cannot adequately accommodate our rapid growth.

165 Main Street

This former department store built in the late 19th century and retrofitted to suit our full scope of care serves 14,000 patients a year. The building was last renovated more than two decades ago when we served fewer than half the number of patients we do today. Our exam rooms are often used for multiple purposes, leading to inefficiencies, delays, and disjointed patient flow.

2 Church Street

This building directly across the street houses our administrative offices and wellness center. With its rectangular configuration and adjacent parking lot, we are currently not utilizing this building to its fullest extent for patient care.

Our Plans

With a complete renovation of the Ossining Open Door campus, we will create sufficient space to accommodate increased demand and deliver innovative care to more of our neighbors.

2 Church Street

Initial design concept (digital rendering)

This location will become the hub of our medical care, behavioral health care, and telehealth services with:

  • Standardized medical exam rooms.
  • Telehealth stations and tech-enabled meeting rooms for private discussions with patients.
  • Consultation rooms for interdisciplinary collaboration within care teams

165 Main Street

This historic building will accommodate our ancillary services, including:

  • A larger dental department, including a new dental residency program, allowing us to provide a greater range of dental services to more patients.
  • Expanded podiatry and optometry services.
  • Wellness and large group meeting space for nutrition counseling, WIC, cancer support groups, prenatal education classes, and digital literacy support.
