White Plains Hospital, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and Equinox Fitness Club are partnering to celebrate the one year anniversary of WPH’s Medical and Wellness facility in Armonk with a Family Fun Day on Saturday Oct. 1. The event, which will feature a variety of games and activities for children and adults alike, will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the 99 Business Park Drive parking lot and is free and open to the public.
Children can enjoy a day of fun-filled activities including a visit to the Ted E. Bear clinic, which uses stuffed animals to explain how to treat a variety of ‘boo boo’s and alleviate fears for children surrounding medical care. The first 100 children will receive a free teddy bear to take home.
Equinox will also be on hand offering an array of classes and demonstrations to help families get active and stay in shape. For those looking to really break a sweat, the Armonk Fire Department will be running an obstacle course designed to be as fun as it is challenging.
The new state-of-the-art White Plains Hospital Medical & Wellness facility will be on open for tours with physician meet-and-greets. Mammogram scheduling and on-site flu shots will also be available.
The afternoon includes something for everyone including live music, balloon sculpture, raffles and free giveaways, food trucks and pumpkin painting, courtesy of DeCiccos. To give back to the community, guests are asked to bring canned goods for donation to the Armonk Food Bank. A rain date is set for Oct. 2. For more information call (914) 681-2628.
The White Plains Hospital Medical and Wellness facility opened in late 2015 and features an urgent care center, comprehensive imaging center, and multispecialty outpatient physician practices in a variety of specialties, including primary care, pediatrics, endocrinology, neurology, cardiology and more. The modern, spacious facility is located at 99 Business Park Drive in Armonk, just off route 22 and I-684.
“We hope area residents will come out to enjoy some fabulous activities and meet their neighbors at WPH Medical and Wellness,” said Frances Bordoni, VP of Business Development and Ambulatory and Physician Services at White Plains Hospital. “We are thrilled to have been welcomed so warmly into northern Westchester over the past twelve months, and are looking forward to another great year providing outstanding healthcare services to members of the Armonk community.”
