NYC Health + Hospitals’ 21st century medical centers are part of the most extensive public hospital modernization program in New York City’s history. New ambulatory care pavilions and long-term care facilities, modern labor and delivery suites, and cutting-edge equipment and technology provide modern comfort for patients and allows the optimal delivery of safe, efficient, quality services.
Modern Infrastructure for Safety and Comfort
Our investment in modern infrastructure is more than simply new buildings. Our new structures help us deliver the effective, efficient and patient-centered care you deserve, always seeking to maximize your comfort and dignity.
Some of the exciting projects recently completed include:
- NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur recently completed a major modernization project. The new facility features The Residence at Gouverneur Court, a nursing facility. It also upgraded the existing facility, expanding its services. The renovation allows NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur to provide care to more patients, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

In addition to the new facilities and expanded staff, NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County redesigned its mental health programs. The Center’s approach focuses on recovery-oriented, patient and family-centered care. This method of delivering behavioral and mental health services is a model for hospitals around the city and around the country.
- NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem. The Mural Pavilion at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem expands access to preventive care, emergency services and specialty services. Features of the Pavilion include the Bariatric Center of Excellence, an expanded chronic hemodialysis unit and the new Adult and Pediatric Emergency Departments.
