The Center for Community Health also features state-of-the-art suites for gastroenterology and endoscopy, multispecialty medical and surgical services, and a diagnostic imaging center that includes PET-CT and MRI modalities. It has a valet-staffed parking facility, a grab-and-go cafe, a conference center, comfortable sky lobby waiting areas and staff dedicated to helping patients and visitors navigate the building.

“Lendlease is proud of its collaboration with NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital and grateful for the opportunity to apply a unique approach to building healthcare facilities, one that prioritizes health and safety, as well as technology-enabled efficiency and sustainability,” said Lendlease Americas Principal in Charge of Healthcare Rich Steimel. “Creating places that provide high-quality, patient-centered care has never been more crucial, and we look forward to seeing the benefits this facility will bring for Brooklyn residents.”

“NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital is proud to open the doors to our new Center for Community Health, where Brooklynites can find access to world-class, convenient care right in their backyard and all under one roof,” said Robert Guimento, President of NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
