Greenburgh Health Center provides free care to Ukrainian refugees
The Greenburgh Health Center is doing its part in helping Ukrainian refugees arriving in the United States.
Alina Kozachenko arrived just days ago from Ukraine.
She is a cardiac patient in need of life-saving treatment and surgery. The Greenburgh Health Center will be giving her both, free of charge, as part of efforts to help refugees.
"I think she's very grateful and I'm grateful for the opportunity," says Irena Portenko, Kozachenko's daughter.
The Greenburgh Health Center is ready to take on more patients as more Ukrainian refugees to arrive in the Hudson Valley.
"We have an entire team that will coordinate the care that these families need," says CEO of the Greenburgh Health Center, Judith Watson. "Whether it's primary, dental, behavioral care, we have the team."
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says it's a human rights issue and he is grateful that the town has an organization that cares.
