The Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth) has unveiled plans to build a $230-million, 280,000-square-foot Ambulatory Care Pavilion on its Valhalla campus, representing the largest healthcare construction project in the county in decades.
The eight-story steel and glass Ambulatory Care Pavilion, expected to break ground this spring, will include 185,000 square feet of ambulatory care service space, including an Advanced Imaging Center, Ambulatory Surgery Center and Heart and Vascular Institute, and a 20,000-square-foot private-room expansion for WMC, plus another 75,000 square feet for physician offices. The project is expected to generate 180 full-time jobs when complete.
“WMCHealth has been an integral part of the healthcare and economic fabric of Westchester and the region for more than 100 years,” says Michael D. Israel, WMCHealth President and CEO. “The development of an ambulatory care hub on our Valhalla campus will respond to key changes in healthcare delivery, enable us to offer outpatient services on campus, and further showcase the latest in healthcare technologies.
As the area’s leading provider of healthcare services and with a growing network of seven hospitals and a workforce of more than 10,000 people, our commitment to the region has never been stronger,” he adds.
