Mount Sinai Health System plans to replace the existing facility by opening a smaller hospital on 14th Street and Second Avenue.
Per The New York Times from last week:
The plan for the new Beth Israel building calls for breaking ground in 2017. Once that is completed, the existing building, at 16th Street and First Avenue, will be sold, with the proceeds helping to offset the costs of the change, hospital officials said.
The new building will have about 70 beds with an emergency department several blocks away, officials said. It will also include expanded outpatient facilities at three sites with more than 35 operating and procedure rooms and 16 physician practice locations to be used by over 600 doctors.
You'll have a chance to hear more about these future plans from hospital officials next Thursday, June 9, during a joint Community Board 3 committee meeting.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting is in the Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. at the Bowery.
