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.

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.  

ER, Critical Care & Trauma

Pomarico Design Studio has had the pleasure to design and build the Emergency Department and supporting programs at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital.   As emergency departments continue to be heavily used, PDS is innovating creative solutions to improve the ED experience.  Through strategic planning, collaborating with hospital staff, and innovating the latest health technology, our goal is to create the best environment of care during times of uncertainty.

Three bricks, different aesthetics

In this material study, PDS was challenged to find a simple and cost effective way to make an ordinary brick wall appear extraordinary and dynamic. In an attempt to make the massive 65,000 SF building feel light weight, we are working with a gradient of 3 brick types. Moving from darkest at the bottom and fading slightly to a light colored brick, we ended by capping the building with a Bone colored roof in a final gesture of lightness and visual balance.
