Hospitals in the N.Y.C. region are using modular construction to rein in costs as they spend billions to update facilities, according to an article on the Real Deal website.

It’s the system's second modular project after they replaced a Brooklyn healthcare clinic in 2012 that was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
