NYU Langone Opens Kimmel Pavilion June 24th
One of the largest projects in the Revista database is about to open on June 24th after more than a decade of careful planning and execution. NYU Langone has been in the process of building the new Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion alongside renovations to the existing Tisch Hospital. The two buildings are directly connected on multiple levels with Kimmel Pavilion being designed as an extension of the existing hospital. The new building is 21 stories and 830,000 square feet and a portion of that will house the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital. Each patient room includes a new technology called “MyWall” which is comprised of a large screen on the wall and a touch screen tablet bedside that allows access to a single system to view patient records, options for lunch and even lights in the room. From all private rooms to a fleet of robots…yes, robots…this project will be a living, breathing example of the latest in healthcare technology and design.
“We take a holistic view of creating environments of the highest quality for our patients and families,” says Vicki Match Suna, AIA, senior vice president and vice dean for Real Estate Development and Facilities at NYU Langone. “Recognizing that design greatly impacts the patient experience and can have positive effects on health outcomes, these new spaces have been thoughtfully planned with warm and welcoming environments that encourage overall health and wellbeing, where patients can find comfort and draw inspiration from their surroundings.”
Ennead Architects designed the building with Turner Construction as the general contractor.
