Mayor Mike Spano Cuts Ribbon on Another New Yonkers Business
YONKERS, NY – February 23, 2016 – Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano joined local officials, Synergy HomeCare of Westchester President J. Heinlein and Synergy HomeCare of Westchester employees to cut the ribbon on and officially open Synergy HomeCare of Westchester in Yonkers’ downtown waterfront neighborhood. Synergy Homecare of Westchester provides non-medical home care services such as personal care, errands and transportation, meal preparation and housekeeping.
“We’re so excited to cut the ribbon on Synergy HomeCare of Westchester and welcome another new business to Yonkers,” said Mayor Mike Spano. “Every ribbon cut means new jobs being created in our city, new revenues to support our quality of life and new opportunities to expand our growing economy.
Previously based in Hastings, NY, Synergy HomeCare of Westchester moved its office to the Yonkers waterfront after the expanding business outgrew its former office space. Synergy HomeCare of Westchester employs more than 75 direct caregivers and office support staff. The company specializes in home care services, elder care, recovery assistance and respite services for family caregivers. Founded four years ago, the company has proudly served more than 150 local families.
“Yonkers is an incredible transit hub, and that’s important for our businesses,” said Synergy HomeCare of Westchester President and Owner J. Heinlein. “Our caregivers serve clients across Yonkers, Southern Westchester and parts of Bronx County, so it’s important that they have access to quick, reliable transportation options – and that’s exactly what you’ll find in Yonkers.”
Yonkers is one of the most accessible cities in the metropolitan area. Ten Metro North Railroad stations serve Yonkers; five major highways connect Yonkers with the rest of Westchester County, New York City and beyond; and Yonkers has 4.5 miles of Hudson River waterfront. The downtown waterfront neighborhood has experienced rapid growth over the last several years. Today, with more than $1 billion of private investment in Yonkers, there are more than 1,500 residential units in various stages of development on the waterfront, including the UNO Micro Units at i.Park and Hudson River Park Club project, which have both begun construction.
