New York Presbyterian Hospital
Image Guided Interventional Suite
Location: New York, NY
Size: 40,000 SF
Project Type: Expansion
Our work at The Allen Hospital began with a two-story 10,000 sf building expansion within an existing courtyard encompassing an MRI imaging suite and a future core/shell space. The initial scope also required the relocation of the courtyard garden to the roof of the new expansion. During this first phase of construction, the scope expanded to the Hospital's ambulatory surgery and endoscopy programs, a PACU and, finally, the design of a surgery suite to accommodate a new spine surgery program which was executed on a highly accelerated schedule. Having recruited a renowned spinal surgery team, the Hospital needed to customize and renovate 3 ORs and redesign their. support spaces. Design of the ORs was accomplished in 30 days from contract to working drawings, including programing and planning meetings with the surgeons. Construction was fast tracked in 90 days to meet the recruitment and opening day surgery schedules of the facility.
