Building the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion
NYU Langone’s plan for providing world-class patient care on its main campus hinges upon the newly built, state-of-the-art, 830,000-square-foot Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion, alongside the current flagship Tisch Hospital. The Kimmel Pavilion opened in June 2018.
Together, the Kimmel Pavilion and Tisch Hospital facilities offer a seamless patient experience, with the buildings directly connected on procedural and imaging floors, and on the lobby level concourse. The two facilities also share central sterilization and other support services.
Planning the Kimmel Pavilion from scratch allowed senior leadership at NYU Langone to rethink how the facility could best accommodate emerging technologies, innovative clinical practices, and a growing emphasis on the patient experience. Its high-efficiency operating rooms are standardized but also flexible enough to quickly adapt to specific uses as needed. The layout optimizes efficiency by moving patients around less, bringing patient care equipment to the bedside, and freeing clinical staff to spend more time caring for patients.
The Kimmel Pavilion offers single-bed inpatient rooms, an innovation that greatly enhances infection control, allows for a more efficient workflow for staff in each room, and can better accommodate a patient’s family and visitors.
