Methodist Hospital unveils early plans for new outpatient building

New York Methodist Hospital (NYM) has unveiled preliminary plans for construction of a new outpatient care building.

The new building — to be dubbed the New York Methodist Hospital Center for Community Health — will enable NYM to enhance their patient care by increasing comfort to both patients and staff, while also improving services in their existing facilities.

“Brooklyn has the fastest growing residential population within New York City, and that growth is reflected in the number of Brooklyn residents who come to New York Methodist Hospital for care,” said Mark J. Mundy, president and CEO of the Hospital. “Over the past few decades, the Hospital’s inpatient and outpatient services have dramatically increased in volume, with over 40,000 inpatient and 350,000 outpatient encounters now logged annually.”

Due to advances in technology and the changes in the healthcare delivery system, more procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, requiring more space.

Services planned for the building include physician offices, a new ambulatory surgery center, an endoscopy suite, and urgent care center and a comprehensive cancer center that includes radiation oncology and chemotherapy services on-site. There will also be community education and conference facilities.
