June 11, 2018

New York University Langone Medical Center's new high-rise healthcare facility was designed with superstorm flood protection after the campus sustained significant damage during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, according to an article on the Fierce Healthcare website.

Officials said the new building is the final piece of the plan to protect against future superstorms.

"It completes that perimeter wall for us to protect that entire campus," Vicki Match Suna, NYU Langone's senior vice president and vice dean for real estate development and facilities, said in the article.

The building is the final phase of $6 billion campus plan, which included the creation of a new energy facility.
