The New York City Health + Hospital Corporation (HHC) and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is managing the design and construction project at Coney Island Hospital ("CIH").
Coney Island Hospital suffered extensive flood damage due to Superstorm Sandy in 2012. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), has provided the funding to develop a permanent plan to mitigate future storms and flooding for the campus.
The Major Work project at CIH includes the following components:
- Build a new resilient acute care hospital tower to be known as the Critical Services Structure (“CSS”).
- Provide on-site parking on the ground floor.
- Demolish 2 of the existing buildings, including Hammett Pavilion and Building 6.
- Construct site improvements.
- Renovate and selectively demolish 60,000 gross sq. feet including portions of the existing Main Building and Tower Building.
- Build a new permanent flood mitigation structure (s) (e.g. flood wall) around the campus.
The project consists of approximately 366,245 gross square feet (gsf) and will include a new Emergency Department, Surgical floor, Radiology / Pharmacy / SPD floor, Mechanical floor, 3 med / surgery patient floors, 3 Behavioral Health floors and a Mechanical penthouse. In addition, there will be approximately 243,000 square feet of site improvements.
