NEW YORK CITY — NYU Langone Medical Center has received two gifts totaling $260 million, which will go towards the expansion of the medical school campus and hospital.
Approximately $150 million will go towards construction of a new patient pavilion, which will increase the clinical space by 50 percent. The remaining $110 million will be used to redesign Tisch Hospital, NYU’s flagship hospital, which was built in 1963.
“NYU Langone is known for the humanity of its patient care and for the caliber of its physicians and scientists,” says Robert Grossman, M.D., newly appointed dean of the Medical Center. “As we build on that legacy and continue implementing our multi-year transformation, these gifts are a powerful endorsement of our efforts and our talented team of physicians, scientists, nurses, faculty and staff.”
The two gifts bring the total philanthropic giving to NYU Langone this year to $506 million.
Both the new patient pavilion and Tisch Hospital will be settings for state-of-the-art medicine, enhanced patient care and comfort, and expanded family services.
“These gifts will help bring our dreams for NYU Langone closer to reality,” said Grossman.
