Construction Continues at Montefiore Nyack Hospital

Building and site construction continues for the new Emergency Department and Medical Village at Montefiore Nyack Hospital in Nyack, New York. The anticipated completion for Phase I is set for late fall. The new Emergency Department consists of renovated main treatment area, trauma area, nurse stations, and support spaces. Phase I also includes the redesign of the ambulance drop off canopy and drive.

Due to Nyack Hospital’s unique terrain, PDS took the opportunity to create designated entrances for the different hospital users: the ED walk-in patients can now be dropped off at the new ED entrance, the ambulances can enter and exit directly off of Midland Avenue to the designated ambulance parking area, and the Medical Village and Ambulatory Surgery Center entrance is conveniently located closer to the parking lot for visiting patients. The change in topography also allowed opportunities to include gardens and planters creating a comfortable buffer from the busy street.

Award of Merit: Hackensack University Medical Center Emergency Trauma Dept

We are humbled to have been awarded the ENR (Engineering News-Record) New York Award of Merit for our work at Hackensack University Medical Center Emergency Trauma Department. 

Every year, ENR New York assembles an independent group of judges to review, score and determine final winners from the states of New Jersey and New York. They review each entry on their own, scoring them on various criteria, and then meet to discuss which projects impressed them the most. Judges may select honorees for both Best Project and Award of Merit.

Our team will be looking forward to accepting this award in October.

We are excited to share the news for the completion of Lake Charle's Memorial Hospital's Behavioral Health Hospital.  For this project, PDS experimented in new ways to create brick aesthetics and to break away from the traditional orthogonal use of this material.  Below are several interior photos provided by our flooring company Patcraft.
