As part of Northwell Health Physician Partners, we at Westchester Health are incredibly proud of our brave and dedicated physicians who are on the front lines caring for COVID-19 patients during the pandemic. Each week we will share their stories in their own words.
Dr. Meghan Auten returns to her residency hospital
Usually, primary care physician Dr. Meghan Auten sees mostly women patients in her Westchester Health Valhalla primary care office. But on April 30th, she was redeployed to Phelps Hospital to help its hospitalist team take care of both COVID and non-COVID patients there.
Having graduated from her residency at Phelps 18 months ago, Dr. Auten says in a video (below) that she was “really struck walking the halls at how many physical changes have happened in our hospital, how much work has gone into making sure that we can take care of all our patients safely.”
She adds, “It’s been bittersweet to be back. I’m happy to see a lot of familiar faces.”
