How was the Center Developed?

The Center for Family Caregivers at Shore Medical Center is a replicated center.  It was created in consultation with representatives from the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center, which was the first “in-hospital” center when it opened in 2007 at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco, NY. We at Shore Medical Center are very fortunate for the opportunity to establish our own center to support the family caregivers in our community.
