HHC's 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:
- Gouverneur Healthcare Services 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 Gouverneur to provide care to more patients, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
- Kings County Hospital Center has opened a new Behavioral Health Center, providing comprehensive care for more than 12,000 patients each year. In addition to the new facilities and expanded staff, Kings County Hospital Center 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.
- Harlem Hospital. The Mural Pavilion at Harlem Hospital Center 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. The Pavilion also showcases historic murals by African-American artists.
