NYU Langone Health, Tisch Hospital Renovations and Addition
A multi-phased renovation and addition focused on public spaces and critical infrastructure transformed the experience of visiting and working in the hospital.
The addition of four passenger elevators on the outside of the building and an expanded lobby addressed a long-standing deficiency in the hospital. On the inpatient floors, the new elevator tower also afforded much needed spaces for staff collaboration and family support. The elevator tower incorporates vertical pathways for new electrical and IT service, enabling critical technology upgrades of the nursing units.
As part of the project, building electrical and mechanical systems were relocated from the basement level to the first floor, elevating the critical infrastructure above the 500-year flood elevation.
New family and staff amenities on the first floor of the hospital include a meditation room, retail, and a major new cafeteria overlooking First Avenue. The redesigned central courtyard provides a variety of respite spaces for families and staff.
