55 Hudson Yards

Developers have long tried to lure buyers and renters with lists of spectacular amenities and high-end art collections, but Hudson Yards developers’ Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have something no other New York City developer is offering– a medical clinic for people who live and work in their buildings. According to the New York Times, Related asked buyers what they considered an “ideal” place to live. Jeff T. Blau, Related’s chief executive and a board member at Mount Sinai, said, “They were saying they like having their doctors around the corner, and when we thought about it we realized there were no doctors around the corner because this neighborhood didn’t exist before.”

The “members-only” clinic, which will be located at 55 Hudson Yards, will be run by the Mount Sinai Health System. Despite being a massive 18,000-square-foot facility, there will not be any beds or emergency room, it will simply be for check-ups and non-life threatening emergencies. The clinic will be open seven days a week and after hours, doctors will be available on phone. And, if need be, house calls are available.

Perhaps Related is hoping that with all of the other lifestyle amenities available in the development, residents will be healthier and the need for house calls will be few and far between.
