Surgical Pavilion, Delayed by COVID-19, Moves Ahead

The COVID-19 pandemic upended, reconfigured or delayed nearly every aspect of healthcare facilities, and new construction is no exception. Now, as the pandemic begins to wane nationwide with the widespread availability of vaccines, hospital revenues are starting to recover, and construction projects are resuming.

Even while battling the earliest stages of COVID-19, North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y., pushed forward with plans to construct a $325 million surgical pavilion, according to Long Island Business News.

Recently, after more than 10 years of planning and 13 months of construction, the hospital held a steel-beam topping-off ceremony for the facility, named the Petrocelli Advanced Surgical Pavilion.

When completed, the pavilion will feature 18 operating rooms, including three hybrid operating suites with advanced imaging, 44 intensive care unit beds, a lobby at the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital and two levels of parking under the building.

Northwell broke ground on the project in April 2020 and it is slated to be complete by the end of 2023.
