Campus Transformation Overview

NYU Langone Medical Center's Strategy for Becoming a World-Class Patient-Centered Integrated Academic Medical Center

CT Overview River View 448xThe Campus Transformation project is dramatically reshaping NYU Langone Medical Center through a series of major new constructions, renovations and expansions, all geared to creating a world-class, patient-centered, integrated academic medical center that will lead the industry for decades to come. Under the leadership of Dean & CEO Robert I. Grossman, M.D, this is the most sweeping revitalization of the Medical Center in its history.

It is a master plan to reorganize and optimize the Medical Center’s on-campus and off-campus resources, and for structuring future growth while enhancing the essential integration of patient care, research and education. The plan addresses the fact that while NYU Langone Medical Center is anchored by its main campus—the area bounded by 34th Street to the north, 30th Street to the south, the FDR Drive to the east and 1st Ave. to the west—it also extends beyond into nearby city streets, south along the 1st Ave. corridor, and further still into other boroughs and the Greater New York region.

Such a sweeping transformation is needed because the Medical Center’s three-fold objective of achieving sustained excellence in patient care, medical research and education, is currently being constrained by the confining building envelopes of its on-campus facilities, an aging infrastructure and sub-optimal adjacencies between programs that ought to function together more seamlessly.

The vision comprises:
• Upgrading, standardizing and integrating acute patient care services in Kimmel and Tisch to form the North Clinical Campus at the main campus
• Extending ambulatory care, administration and housing resources to the “urban campus” of the surrounding neighborhood and region
• Concentrating and expanding research and education efforts primarily in the southeast corner of the main campus, with further growth pending off-campus
• Building a robust and scalable infrastructure to meet the entire Medical Center’s energy and infrastructure needs, now and in the future

The primary component projects linked to this vision are:
