In the most sweeping revitalization in our more than 170-year history, we are transforming the NYU Langone campus to set a new standard for academic medical centers, and to define our future for decades to come. Here are some of the highlights.
The Next Chapter
Center for Emergency Services
A new expanded emergency department with state-of-the-art technology will more than double the department’s current size (from 6,900 to more than 22,000 square feet) at 550 First Avenue. Improvements include separate treatment areas for pediatric patients.
A new 71,000-square-foot building will provide electricity and steam to the campus; both replacing old services and providing new capacity to meet the growing energy demand of our expanding campus. In addition to power from Con Edison, power and steam will be generated on-site by a combined heat and power co-generation plant that will improve our energy reliability and efficiency as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it will be equipped to handle the Medical Center’s emergency power needs, and will provide a new and more spacious home for the Department of Radiation Oncology. The Energy Building and Radiation Oncology will open in 2015; the cogeneration plant will be operational in 2016.
A new 360,000-square-foot building, located at the southeast corner of the medical center’s campus on 30th Street, will enable NYU Langone to expand its strong translational research efforts, turning laboratory advancements more quickly into clinical innovation. The facility will accommodate projected growth in research faculty over the next decade and will house new important research initiatives in neuroscience and molecular biology. The building’s location will make it a major point of access to the NYU School of Medicine, and its 30th Street entrance will serve as a main entrance to research activities on campus.
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 the Kimmel family, it will integrate seamlessly with the existing Tisch Hospital to concentrate acute inpatient and outpatient clinical services in the northern area of the medical center’s campus. When the Kimmel Pavilion is completed, additional construction will take place at Tisch Hospital to renovate, renew, and refresh that facility.
Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital
Funded by a generous gift from the Hassenfeld family, this new 160,000-square-foot child- and family-friendly pediatric hospital within the Kimmel Pavilion will transform the future of children’s healthcare.
