NYU Langone Medical Center
NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases
Location: New York, NY
Size: 2,400 SF
Project Type: Equipment Upgrade,
The new MRI Suite is located in the Hospital for Joint Diseases and serves both in-patients and out-patients. The Siemens system is set up to support MRI studies with anesthesia. Magnetic shielding is located in the room with non-magnetic structural steel for reinforcement used due to limited access and because of it the suite’s original use as a patient floor. The interior finishes in the room are designed as a modular panel with no wet trade finishes. The magnet was delivered through a wall hatch on a Saturday morning and the room was finished and ready for Siemens to begin installation on Monday morning. This was a multi-phased project that included removal of a decommissioned MRI system and the decant and relocation off-site of the patient pre-admission testing office.
