N.Y. facility's technology designed to decrease patient stress

November 1, 2018

NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital's newest ambulatory care center, The David H. Koch Center, was designed with technology to cut patient stress and wait times, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
