Northwell Health and Maimonides Medical Center are reportedly planning to together develop 45,000 square feet of space within the long-shuttered 243-bed Victory Memorial Hospital at 9036 Seventh Avenue in Bay Ridge.
The endeavor, reportedly pending approval from New York state officials, was announced by Crains New York on Friday, December 16, in an article which further reported that, in June of this year, Northwell signed a long-term lease for the site.
Its lease will take over that of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, which began serving patients there once Victory closed in 2008.
Moreover, Crains reported, SUNY Downstate – which offers urgent care, ambulatory surgery, endoscopy services and laser eye surgery at the site – will continue to utilize its 130,000 square feet of space within the building, and will become a subtenant.
Though, the new lease is still subject to approval from the Office of the State Comptroller, the state Attorney General and the Division of the Budget, according to Crains.
Also already operating out of the old Victory Memorial Hospital is the Hamilton Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. In 2015, ACI – a for-profit in-patient drug and alcohol facility – considered leasing three floors in the space, though was met with pushback and inevitably opted out.
Representatives for Northwell Health and Maimonides Medical Center could not be reached for comment by press time.
