VALHALLA – The Westchester Medical Center Health Network Wednesday
unveiled plans to build a $230 million, 280,000 square feet ambulatory
care pavilion adjacent to Westchester Medical Center on its Valhalla campus.
The project will be the largest healthcare construction project in the county in decades.
The Westchester County Local Development Corporation, a county agency
that makes tax exempt financing available to non-profit institutions at
no risk to taxpayers, approved it Wednesday.
Westchester Medical Center is now WMCHealth.
“This project will enable us to offer outpatients services currently not available on our campus and further showcase the latest in healthcare technologies,” said WMCHealth President Michael Israel.
The eight-story Ambulatory Care Center will include 185,000 square feet of ambulatory care service space, including an advanced imaging center, ambulatory surgery center and heart and vascular institute, and a 20,000 SF private-room expansion for Westchester Medical Center as well as 75,000 SF for physician offices.
The new project is expected to break ground this spring and will generate 180 new full-time jobs as well as 225 prevailing wage construction jobs.
