The diagnostic and treatment center was awarded a $10,000 grant for its Formé Medical Membership program – a tiered membership model that provides patients with unlimited urgent care visits and discounted rates for a low monthly premium and minimal annual fee. The Formé Medical Membership program was launched in 2016 to provide affordable avenues to high quality preventive care to under-served and uninsured residents of Westchester County.
Formé Medical Center and Urgent Care presented their project to a panel of local business leaders and health care experts prior to 914INC. Magazine’s sixth annual Small Business Awards on Thursday, Sept. 13. Finalists were evaluated on criteria such as community impact, creativity and feasibility by a panel of judges that included:
- Westchester Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins
- 914INC. Magazine Executive Editor Amy Partridge
- Business Council of Westchester Executive VP and COO John Ravitz
- WESTMED Medical Group Medical Director Dr. Steven M. Meixler
- WVOX Radio Host Bob Marrone
I want to acknowledge all of the talented and passionate finalists who presented their ideas, including the New York Medical College Chapter of the Student National Medical Association in Valhalla and The Children's Environmental Health Center of the Hudson Valley in Hawthorne. And I want to congratulate Formé Medical Center and Urgent Care for taking an innovative approach to offering affordable, high-quality and compassionate health care to the Westchester community. We are excited to help extend the reach of this innovative program to more Westchester residents.
