Greenwich Hospital announces appointment of four Westchester OB/GYN Physicians
Maternity Dept. expands to accommodate increased deliveries

March 11, 2014 (Greenwich, CT) – Greenwich Hospital has announced the appointment of four new Westchester-based physicians to its active medical staff, Dept. of Obstetrics/Gynecology. In 2013, more than 2,200 babies were delivered at Greenwich Hospital. With the addition of Drs. Robert Armbruster, Paula Brignoni Blume, Jordan Hirsch and Joshua Waldman, whose WESTMED practice is located at 73 Market St., Ridge Hill, Yonkers, NY, that number is expected to increase significantly in the coming year.

To accommodate the anticipated increase, the hospital is in the process of expanding the footprint of its nursery, level-three Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Maternal-Fetal Medicine (Perinatology) rooms.

“The changes are designed to ultimately handle between 2,500 and 3,000 births,” said Susan Brown, RN, senior vice president, Patient Care Services. “We’re thrilled to offer our high-quality maternity services to an even greater number of families in Westchester County.” Currently, Westchester residents make up 49 percent of the hospital’s overall patient population. 


Robert Armbruster, MD, (Bedford, NY resident) earned his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine. He is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
