The Westchester Square Civic Association honored Montefiore Medical Center’s commitment to the community with a recent ceremony at Montefiore Westchster Square, the building that used to be Westcheseter Square Medical Center.

Montefiore was honored by the community organization for purchasing the assets of WSMC and converting its building into an ambulatory surgery center and a full-service, stand alone, emergency department that is open 24 hours a day.

Lou Rocco, WSCA president, presented a Montefiore engineer with an award for quieting a generator next to a residential block adjacent to the building. Then the group, including top Montefiore brass, toured the facility to see Montefiore’s investment first-hand.
