2020 Phelps Resident Contract

Sleepy Hollow, New York

Home to both Phelps Hospital and Open Door Family Medical Centers, Sleepy Hollow is a diverse community that encompasses a scenic landscape and a welcoming downtown with a variety of public parks, shops, restaurants and pubs. A historic destination with spirited town life year-round, Sleepy Hollow’s most noteworthy claim to fame is its emblematic “headless horseman” which is seen everywhere during Halloween season and beyond.

The 1400-acre Rockefeller State Park Preserve, literally steps away from Phelps Hospital, is sublime; one of the most pristine landscapes any hiker, biker, horseback-rider or cross-country skier could ever hope for. The Hudson River, visible from the Phelps Hospital campus, offers countless, breathtaking views.
