Human Development Services of Westchester (HDSW) has been Creating Community for people in Westchester County since 1968, providing services to people throughout every corner of Westchester County. At HDSW there are opportunities every day for a person to realize their goals; help to find good integrated health care; to obtain stable housing, receive employment supports and training or help to get a job; or to receive a scholarship to return to school.
Throughout the last five years, HDSW has been addressing the Triple Aim of improving an individual’s experience of health care, improving their health and reducing the cost of providing care. One critical step was to join together with other like-minded Hudson Valley preeminent values-based community behavioral health and disability service agencies to form Coordinated Behavioral Health Services (CBHS). Our joint efforts have enabled us to respond to the rapidly changing health care environment in NY State and to develop the critical business relationships necessary for sustainability. Along with our CBHS partners, HDSW is significantly involved in the Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP) via the two Performing Provider Systems in our Region.
