HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), has rejoined the Empire BlueCross BlueShield health insurance network.

The multiyear agreement, which went into effect Friday, lets patients covered by Empire BlueCross Blue Shield go to all HealthAlliance facilities for all healthcare services. This means all patients covered by Empire BlueCross Blue Shield are now in network at HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus and HealthAlliance Hospital: Mary’s Avenue Campus in Kingston and at Margaretville Hospital in Margaretville.

“We couldn’t be happier,” said David Scarpino, President and CEO, HealthAlliance.

“Empire BlueCross BlueShield members can now go to HealthAlliance to get the great care they expect, with the doctors they trust, in their home county, where they want to get care,” he says.

Scarpino adds, “We look forward to working with WMCHealth to increase our investment in the community by adding more physician specialists, equipping our hospitals with the latest technologies and improving access so we can keep the highest-quality healthcare local for everyone.”
