Maimonides celebrates topping-off of new medical arts building
New Facility at Maimonides Brings Multispecialty Practices Under One Roof
Maimonides Medical Center recently celebrated the topping-off of its new Medical Arts Building with a special ceremony to mark the completion of the steel framework. The state-of-the-art facility is located on Ninth Avenue between 48th and 49th streets and is expected to be completed in the fall of next year.
“The Maimonides Board of Trustees is committed to providing the latest medical technologies and facilities,” said Eugene Keilin, Maimonides board chair, “so that patients can receive the finest care available anywhere.”
“When complete, this new addition to our campus will allow our talented physicians to see patients in office suites that reflect the best Maimonides has to offer,” noted Kenneth D. Gibbs, Maimonides president and CEO. “We will provide excellent care in a setting that is beautiful and convenient for all.”
The new Medical Arts Building, expected to cost $100 million to construct, will have seven floors and 140,000 square feet of space above-ground. The facility will house more than 100 exam and consultation rooms. The building design includes special teaming areas intended to improve communication between doctors, nurses and staff. There will be additional parking, up to 260 spaces, on two levels below the building.
“We’re delighted to celebrate this major milestone in the construction of the Maimonides Medical Arts Building,” said Keith Beneke, a principal of MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate. “We’re very proud of the work being done by the entire design and construction team, including our tradesmen and construction workers.”
The new building will house the offices of Maimonides faculty physicians representing many of the medical, surgical, and pediatric subspecialty programs.
MedCraft has engaged Gensler Architects and Americon Construction for design and construction of the building. Welltower Inc. is providing the capital for the project. The next phase of construction will include work on the building’s exterior and concrete floors, in advance of the construction on the interior fit-out of the building.
