Skanska to Build $230M Ambulatory Care Pavilion at Westchester Medical Center in New York
VALHALLA, N.Y. — Westchester Medical Center Health Network has selected Skanska to build a $230 million, 279,861-square-foot Ambulatory Care Pavilion adjacent to Westchester Medical Center on its campus in Valhalla, approximately 25 miles north of Manhattan.
The eight-story steel and glass pavilion will include 185,000 square feet of ambulatory care service space featuring an advanced imaging center, ambulatory surgery center and a heart and vascular institute.
The development will also feature an entry canopy for patient drop-off, a 20,000-square-foot private-room expansion for Westchester Medical Center and an additional 75,000 square feet of physician offices.
Construction is expected to begin this June, with completion expected in September 2018. Skanska’s contract for the project is valued at $140 million.
According to the hospital, the development is considered the largest healthcare project in the Westchester area since Westchester Medical Center’s 400,000-square-foot main tower was built in 1977 and its 250,000-square-foot Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital was built in 2004.
Skanska is a project development and construction firm with expertise in construction, development of commercial and residential properties, and public-private partnerships.
The Westchester Medical Center Health Network is a 1,400-bed healthcare system headquartered in Valhalla, spanning seven hospitals in the Hudson Valley.
