Westchester Ready to Lead in Bioscience: View

April 06, 2017

It is hard to imagine a more powerful economic message than the one sent last Monday night when the Westchester County Board of Legislators voted unanimously to approve a 99-year lease of 60 acres of county-owned land adjacent to the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla that will allow the creation of the $2.1 billion Westchester BioScience & Technology Center. This shining example of bipartisanship sent a resounding message: Westchester stands ready to build on the burgeoning bioscience cluster that has already taken root and to take a leadership role regionally and nationally in the high tech, high-growth life and bio sciences arena.
