There’s a new tenant in Kips Bay: Spot, a 30-foot-tall Dalmatian sculpture at the entrance of the new 68-bed Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital—34th Street, housed inside NYU Langone’s new Kimmel Pavilion.
“Spot embodies playfulness, but also determination and dignity, which is really what’s necessary to get through an illness of childhood,” says Catherine S. Manno, MD, the Pat and John Rosenwald Professor of Pediatrics and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at NYU Langone Health.
All patient rooms are private and contain the latest in healthcare technology, including the “MyWall” system, a 75-inch electronic screen in each room that allows patients to access records, entertainment, food menus, the lights, and even the blinds from their bed. “Our real focus here is safety, efficiency, and comfort,” Dr. Manno tells NY1.
