Lawrence Home Care History

Lawrence Home Care of Westchester (LHCW) got its start in 1933 as the Public Health Nursing Organization of Eastchester, Inc. (PHNO) with four nurses, a director, and a secretary. Its offices were at 69 Main Street in Tuckahoe. Although PHNO was (and still is) licensed by New York State to serve all of Westchester County, its original service area was mainly divided among Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe, and later included Yonkers, Mt. Vernon and Scarsdale.

1940 - 1995

LHCW, Jansen Hospice, and BCW Treehouse are still going strong under Lawrence Community Health Services, providing expert care and services to thousands of people each year. Today the offices for all 3 agencies are located at 670 White Plains Road, Suite 213 in Scarsdale.

Lawrence Home Care of Westchester provided wonderful, caring attention in the treatment of my leg. True professionals. My nurse always had a cheerful, kind attitude. Without her, I probably would not have come this far in the healing of my leg.
