Integrated academic healthcare delivery system NewYork-Presbyterian has opened the NewYork-Presbyterian David H. Koch Center, an ambulatory care centre, in the US.

Located at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center campus on York Avenue and 68th Street, the approximately 740,000ft² facility combines new clinical approaches and technology to provide better care.

The facility has ambulatory care services including outpatient surgery, interventional radiology, diagnostic imaging, and infusion services, as well as an Integrative Health and Wellbeing programme.

NewYork-Presbyterian president and CEO Dr Steven Corwin said: “Our goal in creating the NewYork-Presbyterian David H. Koch Center was to develop a new vision for what ambulatory care could be by focusing first and foremost on patients’ needs and the delivery of exceptional care.

“Every decision about the design and operation of this building was made with the patient in mind, from the quick and easy check-in to the private prep and recovery rooms, light-filled treatment areas and real-time status updates.”

Central to the design and function of the building are smart technology and smart spaces.

The NYP David H. Koch Center features three linear accelerators, including MRI-guided linear accelerator for precision radiation treatment of tumours.

Other clinical features include 12 operating suites, six interventional radiology procedure rooms, and 11 endoscopic procedure rooms, decentralised clinical care, and radiation oncology services.

HOK, Ballinger, and Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, collaborated on the architecture and design of the NYP David H. Koch Center, which is designed to be highly sustainable.

Peter J. Romano and Company is the project manager, and Turner Construction is the construction manager.
