North Shore University Hospital Unveils $560M State-of-the-Art Surgical Tower

Friday, February 02, 2024

Seventy years after its founding, North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) celebrates the completion of the Petrocelli Surgical Pavilion, a landmark achievement set to revolutionize healthcare in the region. This $560 million, 288,000-square-foot tower represents a significant investment by Northwell Health, New York State’s largest healthcare provider, showcasing its dedication to serving local communities.

The pavilion will complement NSUH's nationally recognized cardiac, neurosurgery, and transplant programs. About 40 percent of NSUH's patients come from Queens, with an additional 5 percent traveling over 100 miles to seek care there. With 756 licensed beds and over 90,000 annual patient treatments, NSUH houses the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital (SABHH), the Katz Women’s Hospital, neurosurgery, multi-organ transplant services, and one of the busiest emergency departments in the region.

The Petrocelli Pavilion features 18 operating rooms, including three hybrid rooms equipped with advanced imaging, and 132 intensive care rooms. Hybrid ORs combine traditional operating rooms with image-guided interventional suites, enabling complex surgical procedures. This expansion enhances NSUH's critical care capabilities, ensuring the delivery of exceptional care.

Upon completion of staff training in the new surgical tower, patients will transition to the upgraded critical care units, with surgeries scheduled to commence later this month. The pavilion will also serve as the new home for the SABHH, featuring a dedicated entrance for cardiac patients and their families.

In constructing the pavilion, Skanska implemented innovative technologies, including drones and 3D modeling, to enhance construction efficiency. The result is a sophisticated environment tailored to meet the evolving needs of patients and healthcare providers.

The state-of-the-art Petrocelli Surgical Pavilion signifies a significant milestone in Northwell's commitment to providing premier healthcare services to the residents of Long Island and beyond.
