Ambulatory Care Expansion
NYU Langone Medical Center has a long history of engagement with the surrounding community that dates back to the founding of NYU School of Medicine in 1841. At present, NYU Langone owns and leases more than 6 million square feet throughout the metropolitan area, with 2.4 million square feet of that on the main campus alone. The depth and breadth of its service is further strengthened by longstanding affiliations with neighboring institutions, especially Bellevue Hospital.
Historically, outpatient care has been centered on the main campus between 34th and 30th Streets, as well as the Hospital for Joint Diseases campus on East 17th Street. Given the inherent physical limits of both campuses, as well as the growing need to bring world-class medical care to patients where they live and work, NYU Langone’s reach is increasingly extending further into the surrounding neighborhood and region.
Three major anchors for this strategy are:
- Ambulatory Care Center, our largest center for off-campus outpatient care, offering a broad array of clinical services in an integrated environment
- Center for Musculoskeletal Care, the largest freestanding facility of its kind in the country
- Outpatient Surgery Center, dedicated solely to the needs of patients undergoing specialized orthopaedic surgical procedures that don’t require an overnight hospital stay
Also in close proximity to the main campus is Perlmutter Cancer Center at 160 East 34th Street, as well as several other sites clustered between 30th and 38th Streets.
NYU Langone Cobble Hill is a clinical facility located at the site of the former Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn. At present, it consists of a freestanding emergency department, providing full-service care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. NYU Langone plans to offer a wide range of ambulatory services at the site via a new four-story facility scheduled for completion in early 2018.
Finally, a rapidly growing portfolio of satellite sites in the five boroughs and greater metropolitan region continues to expand NYU Langone’s reach.
