VE Goldwater North LTACH and SNF
Harlem, New York
Project planning and value engineering for the renovation of the existing North General Hospital renovated to a 201 bed Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) and the addition of a new 160 bed Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) attached to it. The building program took advantage of potential shared facilities, such as food service, environmental services, materials management/central stores, laundry, and storage areas common to both. The scope of work included understanding the project and agency objectives, the proposed plans, a criteria, risk and function analysis, a creative phase, and evaluation phase and finally a development phase. I presented outcomes to the New York City Office of Management and Budget, The Health and Hospital Corporation and the Economic Development Corporation.
