CEO of Forme Medical Center, Maria Trusa, joins United Way of Westchester and Putnam Board of Directors

The United Way of Westchester and Putnam announced that Maria Trusa, CEO of Forme Medical Center and Urgent Care, has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective April 11th, 2018.

The mission of United Way of Westchester and Putnam is to provide stability and promise to the people and families of Westchester and Putnam who are living life from behind. Alana Sweeny, President and CEO of United Way said “Maria absolutely transformed Scarsdale Medical Practice, now one of the premier healthcare organizations in our Counties. And in Formé, she’s innovating brilliantly to bring quality healthcare, in a medical membership model, to the uninsured individuals and families in desperate need. She is no less than a perfect addition to our board.”

Maria was the Executive Director of the Scarsdale Medical Group, a successful multi-specialty medical practice in Westchester, NY. With a trajectory of 26 years at Scarsdale, she decided to venture out and join forces with her business partner Gina Cappelli at Formé Medical Center in an effort to assist others in need. As CEO, Maria stands proudly and tenaciously behind Formé Medical Center, a Social Enterprise practice that offers high-quality, dignified medical care to residents and undocumented immigrants of Westchester County and surrounding communities.

“What a privilege to be part of such an historic entity,” said Ms. Trusa, “ Just like Formé, United Way of Westchester and Putnam is working on the front edges of innovation to make a lasting impact on so many.”

After a year and a half of working on a Medical Membership Model, Maria and Gina Cappelli developed a medical membership concept comprised of three levels of care, which will allow thousands in our Counties to access quality preventative care. There are no co-pays, deductibles or additional payments required for these services. Says Ms. Trusa, “The Formé approach shapes to the lives of our patients, rather than asking patients to shape their lives around traditional and inaccessible forms of medical care.”
