Smile NEW YORK | Lenox Hill Hospital Tower | 516 FT | FLOORS

Lenox Hill Hospital to see a $2B renovation. Here’s what Northwell Health is planning



Quote:
Lenox Hill Hospital owners Northwell Health think the Upper East Side site’s existing 10 buildings are just too old and too small.

They are expected to announce a $2 billion renovation package, that will include the creation of a 41-story, 200 unit residential building at the Park Avenue corner of the site, according to the Wall Street Journal. It is not yet known what developer will be tapped to work on the new residential building.


The current hospital site stretches an entire city block between Park and Lexington Avenue, at 76th to 77th streets. Some of the hospital’s facilities date back to the 1800s.

The planned renovation includes a 516 foot hospital room tower, new physician practice offices, and the potential demolition of three townhouses on the north side of 77th to create one new building.

Northwell Health will need to receive city and community approval for the project. City Council member Keith Powers, who represents the area, told the Journal that public consultation would be essential.

“It’s incredibly important that there is a lot of public participation in the plan and concerns for those who live in or around the hospital are addressed through the land-use process,” Powers said.

Plan includes private patient rooms, expanded ED, new surgical suites


Quote:
To match investments it has made in recruiting nationally recognized physicians and expanding clinical programs, Lenox Hill Hospital today announced it is preparing a comprehensive renewal plan aimed at ensuring the future success of the storied acute-care facility on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

The goal is to create a new purpose-built Lenox Hill Hospital that will feature all single-bedded patient rooms, an expanded emergency department, new surgical suites and other larger clinical spaces. Plans also call for a new outpatient care center on Third Avenue between 76th and 77th Streets, improvements to the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital on E. 64th Street, and other ambulatory expansions in Manhattan.

As Northwell Health’s flagship hospital in Manhattan, Lenox Hill Hospital has delivered world-class clinical care since its founding in 1857 and currently treats more than 163,000 patients annually. However, several of its 10 buildings were erected more than a century ago and although Northwell Health has invested more than $200 million in capital improvements since Lenox Hill Hospital joined the 23-hospital health system in 2010 and continues to make upgrades, the buildings are not configured to deliver care efficiently and it’s increasingly inefficient to maintain the aging facility.

“Lenox Hill Hospital is one of the most storied institutions in Manhattan, serving communities throughout the city for more than 160 years,” said Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer of Northwell Health. “This revitalization plan is the next step in ensuring Lenox Hill Hospital’s continued success and underscores Northwell Health’s commitment to meeting the health needs of New Yorkers for generations to come.”

To help finance the multi-billion-dollar project, hospital planners are looking at incorporating a new residential building -- a strategy that has served as a lifeline for many cherished New York not-for-profit health, educational, religious and cultural institutions.

Renderings Revealed For Lenox Hill Hospital’s Two New Towers On The Upper East Side



Quote:
Plans for a Lenox Hill Hospital expansion have been in the works for sometime now, and new renderings show a 41-story residential building on part of the hospital’s Upper East Side property. This 490-foot-tall condominium tower will sit on the corner of East 76th Street and Park Avenue and include about 200 units, while a second 30-story tower will be built on the opposite Park Avenue corner at East 77th Street. This structure will include a “mother-baby” hospital wing as well as operating rooms, patient rooms, and programable shared community spaces. The proposal calls for a total of 1.3 million square feet, up from the hospital’s current 780,000 square feet at 100 East 77th Street.

As reported in Westview News, the financial weight of overhauling Lenox Hill made the project nearly impossible to accomplish without “monetizing” part of the hospital’s real estate. The residential tower was added so “we could offset costs for rebuilding Lenox Hill,” said Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer of Northwell Health.

The project has been broken up into three phases to allow for the continued operation of hospital facilities while the new development is constructed. It is unclear when construction will begin or when the expansion is expected to be completed.

Lenox Hill Hospital expansion blasted by Upper East Siders

Quote:
Lenox Hill Hospital’s multibillion-dollar plan to redevelop its Upper East Side campus and convert part of the site into a market-rate condo tower hit a community roadblock Wednesday.

Concerned locals with Manhattan Community Board 8 overwhelmingly shot down the hospital’s preliminary plans to upzone a block bounded by Park and Lexington avenues, and 76th and 77th streets for an ambitious expansion that would include a 516-foot main hospital tower and a 490-foot residential building. The effort is a $2.5 billion hospital overhaul to improve services and patient amenities that would occur in stages over ten years—a construction timeline that is a tough pill to swallow for neighbors.

The undertaking would nearly double the hospital’s footprint—from 780,000 to 1.3 million square feet—and revamp Lenox Hill’s emergency department, create new surgical suites, and launch a new Mother-Baby Hospital with a separate entrance, among other additions. The new campus wouldn’t actually increase the hospital’s number of beds, but would instead upgrade all rooms for single-patient use.

Critics argue that the expansion prioritizes the hospital as a “medical tourism destination” over providing affordable health care, and call the towers out of character with the area.

“We certainly don’t need this monstrous development that is so out of scale with our neighborhood,” Andy Soussloff, who lives across the street from the current campus and is a member of the Committee to Protect Our Lenox Hill Neighborhood, which formed in opposition to the expansion, said at a Wednesday community board meeting.

Lenox Hill may ditch apartment tower meant to pay for hospital overhaul



By Sam Raskin and Nolan Hicks
February 10, 2020


Quote:
Northwell Health is looking to scrap its controversial plan to build a 41-story apartment tower on the Upper East Side — which drew fire from residential neighbors — that would have financed the overhaul of the historic Lenox Hill Hospital, The Post has learned.

The company’s developers floated the downsized proposal last week during a meeting with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, City Councilman Keith Powers and neighborhood representatives.

“We asked for this new plan [from Northwell] to see what you could come up with,” Powers said Monday.

“The concept I’m looking at is a hospital-first project,” he added.

Northwell’s Tuesday presentation to the group still calls for a new, roughly 500-foot tall hospital tower at 77th and Lexington Avenue to provide space for up to 450 hospital beds, according to a copy of the presentation obtained by The Post.

But the rest of the century-old 10-building complex — which stretches down the block to Park Avenue — would merely be renovated, and many of its shortcomings would remain, the presentation warned.
Quote:
“I appreciate Northwell’s willingness to show myself and the community options that don’t include a massive residential tower,” Brewer said in a statement, “and I look forward to more discussions with them.”

The company had planned to build the 490-foot tall residential building to help finance the complete teardown and reconstruction of the Lenox Hill complex.

“We’d like to thank Borough President Brewer and Councilmember Powers for their ongoing and thoughtful leadership of the Lenox Hill Hospital task force,” said Northwell spokeswoman Barbara Osborn. “No decision has been made as we are still in the process of studying the implications to the overall revitalization goals.”
