Emergency Care comes to Greenwich Village
Lenox Health Greenwich Village is a 24-hour emergency care center operating within the landmark O’Toole Building, formerly occupied by St. Vincent’s Medical Center. The 160,000-sq-ft building is the first freestanding, 24-hour emergency care department in the New York metropolitan area.
The project’s objective was to restore the historic building while also renovating the structure to be suitable as a care center.
The building features 28,000 sq ft of emergency department services, with 26 exam rooms able to accommodate two patients each, two 23-hour patient rooms and a results waiting area.
In addition to emergency care, the building houses a full-service imaging center that features digital X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound. The center also includes a specialized ambulatory surgery facility that is focused on interventional treatments for the sick and elderly.
Lenox Health Greenwich Village was the recipient of a BTEA Safety award and is pursuing LEED Gold certification.
