Good Samaritan Hospital Patient Care Pavilion Update 05/09/24

Curtainwall Fully Installed for Long Island Hospital Expansion

General contractor, , has fully installed the glass curtainwall system on the upper floors of a 6-story expansion project, at Good Samaritan University Hospital in West Islip, New York (Long Island).

As facade installation slowly proceeds on the structure's lower half, interior framing and mechanical work are also being carried out within the building.

Developed by Catholic Health, and known as the "Patient Care Pavilion", this major addition will add a new, 300,000 square-foot section to the existing, 450,000 square-foot hospital building.

The project first broke ground back in May of 2022. The hybrid superstructure consists of a 3-story, steel podium, topped by another 3 stories of rebar-reinforced concrete.

The Patient Care Pavilion will feature a 75-bay emergency department, 16 tech-enabled operating rooms, and 36 patient rooms. The design will also provide flexibility for future renovations and additional floors, which could increase the number of patient rooms to 120.

In addition to medical and care facilities, the pavilion will feature a beautiful lobby with a reception desk and seating, as well as a courtyard garden, a café, and a gift store.

While the pavilion won't increase the hospital’s overall bed count, it will position patients closer to key hospital services, while providing them with more private spaces and larger clinical areas. The entire project is set to cost a little over $500 million, and work is expected to wrap up by early 2025.
