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.
