Executives from Simone Development Companies and Montefiore Health System joined with officials from the Town of Harrison and Westchester County to break ground on a development that will change the way pediatric specialty care is delivered throughout Westchester County.
Simone Healthcare Development is renovating a now vacant four-story office building at 104 Corporate Park Drive in Harrison into a 115,000 s/f facility that will be leased to Montefiore.
“Over the past few years healthcare has become a prominent feature in the Westchester Avenue corridor. We are proud to have Montefiore’s expertise in pediatric care in our building,” said Joseph Simone, president of Simone Development Companies.
Some of the planned specialties to be offered in the new facility include: maternal fetal medicine, sports medicine, infusions, psychological services, an imaging suite and laboratory services.
There will also be pediatric urgent care, operated by Westmed Medical Group, a multispecialty outpatient group based in Westchester.
The renovated building will incorporate various green building technologies such as LED lighting, high efficiency HVAC, and high solar reflective index roofing material.
Parking will be provided in a new 200-space garage connected to the building. Construction is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) supports the project and anticipates it will create 100 construction jobs and 250 permanent healthcare related jobs.
Perkins Eastman is the architect for the project.
