The Evolution of NYU Langone Medical Center Continues - 2012 and beyond
In the most sweeping revitalization in our 171-year history, we are transforming our campus to set a new standard for academic medical centers and defining our future for decades to come. Here are some of the highlights.
The Next Chapter
Center for Musculoskeletal Care
333 East 38th Street: An outpatient facility occupying 110,000 square feet, the center will integrate research, clinical practice, rehabilitation, and wellness services for conditions involving the spine, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, sports injuries, and total joint replacement. It will be the largest freestanding facility of its kind in the United States.
Tisch Hospital Expansion
Elevator and lobby expansion and renovation: The addition of an 18-story tower containing four new elevators will dramatically improve visitor access to the upper floors of Tisch Hospital. The main lobby of Tisch will also be expanded and reconfigured to include many more patient and visitor amenities. Later, once the Kimmel Pavilion is fully complete, additional construction will take place to renovate, renew, and refresh the facility. These projects are funded by an extraordinary gift from the Tisch family.
Ambulatory Care Center
240 East 38th Street: Approximately 300,000 square feet of condominium space will accommodate a broad range of outpatient programs from the NYU Cancer Institute, the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, and other services.
Center for Emergency Services
550 First Avenue: A new expanded emergency department with state-of-the-art technology, which will more than double the department’s current size (from 6,900 to 16,900 square feet). Improvements include separate treatment areas for pediatric patients.
A new 78,600-square-foot plant, adjacent to the Kimmel Pavilion, the Energy Building will meet the campus’ growing energy needs by wielding combined heat and power generation. It will also provide a new and roomier home for the Department of Radiation Oncology.
A new 300,000-square-foot center, located at the southwest corner of the medical center’s campus where Rubin Hall and a section of Schwartz Lecture Hall are currently, will enable NYU Langone to expand its strong translational research efforts, turning laboratory advancements more quickly into clinical innovation. Emphases will include the neurosciences, immunology, inflammation, and infection.
A new 800,000-square-foot hospital, the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion will offer state-of-the-art, patient-centered acute care. Funded by a generous leadership gift from Helen L. Kimmel, it will integrate seamlessly with the existing Tisch Hospital to concentrate inpatient clinical services in the northern area of the medical center’s campus.
Hassenfeld Pediatric Center
A new child- and family-friendly pediatric hospital within the Kimmel Pavilion, funded by a generous gift from the Hassenfeld family.
