VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Westchester Medical Center's new Ambulatory Care Pavillion has reached its highest point.
The medical center held a topping off ceremony Wednesday to mark the construction milestone. The 280,000-square-foot, $230 million project is set to be completed next year.
“Today is an exciting day for WMCHealth and for our communities as we celebrate the significant progress that has been made to date on this one-of-a-kind-facility and look forward to the care, innovative technologies, and possibilities for the future that will live within its walls," said Michael D. Israel, President, and CEO of WMCHealth.
The eight-story steel and glass facility will include an Advanced Imaging Center, Ambulatory Surgery Center and Heart and Vascular Institute, in addition to a 20,000-square-foot expansion in private rooms for the medical center and 75,000 additional square feet for physicians’ offices.
“The Ambulatory Care Pavilion will enhance the quality of life for patients in Westchester while creating hundreds of jobs and generating a boost for the local economy – truly a winning combination,” said County Executive Rob Astorino said.
The construction of the new facility is expected to generate 180 new full-time jobs when complete, as well as 225 prevailing wage construction jobs.
