Stephen Ferrando, MD
I’m Stephen Ferrando and I’m going the distance for our behavioral health patients at the Behavioral Health Center, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.
I’m honored to be running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon for the third time on November 6, this time in support of the Behavioral Health Center through the Westchester Medical Center Foundation.
As the Behavioral Health Center’s Director of Psychiatry, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to raise awareness and promote behavioral health for our patients and our community. Behavioral health and mental health are key aspects of who we all are, but the issue is often accompanied by a stigma. By running the NYC Marathon in support of our patients, I hope to help raise awareness and minimize that stigma.
I’ve been a member of WMCHealth’s Behavioral Health Center team for two years and a Westchester County resident for the last 12 years with my wife and four children. As an avid runner since I was 16 years old, I have participated in more than 40 marathons in multiple cities including San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. While I’m running on November 6, seeing my encouraging friends and family along the route and thinking of the patients who are helped by the Behavioral Health Center will keep me motivated.
WMCHealth’s Behavioral Health Center has been a leading provider of comprehensive behavioral health services since 1929. Located in a freestanding facility on WMCHealth’s flagship campus in Valhalla, the Behavioral Health Center offers a full spectrum of inpatient, outpatient, community and emergency care for individuals and families.
Thank you for your support of our behavioral health patients at WMCHealth’s Behavioral Health Center.
