New York-Presbyterian held a beam signing ceremony at its new David H. Koch Center. The ambulatory care facility, which is supported by a $100 million donation from Koch, is expected to open in 2018.
“Today’s ceremonial beam signing and topping-out celebration gives me enormous satisfaction that this site will soon become one of the finest ambulatory care centers dedicated to excellence in healthcare and personalized treatment,” Koch said. “I am honored to participate in this important milestone and contribute to NewYork-Presbyterian’s future success.”
Located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side on York Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets, the David H. Koch Center promises to provide high quality care in a technologically sophisticated setting. Once complete, the 750,000-square foot facility will offer a range of services, including multidisciplinary care for digestive diseases, cancer, eye diseases and other conditions, as well as outpatient surgery, interventional radiology, diagnostic imaging, preadmission testing and a wellness center.
David H. Koch has been a member of the Board of Trustees of New York-Presbyterian since 1988. He currently chairs the board’s development committee and sits on its real estate committee.
