Mount Sinai Health System announced on Tuesday that phase one of a $500 million project to rebuild Mount Sinai Beth Israel and create the new “Mount Sinai Downtown” network is set to start. The network will expand and renovate three sites of outpatient facilities, according to the hospital, which will stretch from the East River to the Hudson River below 34th Street. The network will include 35 operating and procedure rooms and 16 physician practice locations with more than 600 doctors.
The project will be anchored by a new Mount Sinai Beth Israel inpatient hospital, including a new state-of-the-art emergency department, according to the health system. Ennead Architects and Perkins Eastman Architects are the two firms responsible for the new design.
Pending approvals, demolition at the new site is expected to begin early 2017 with construction beginning early 2018. Construction of the new hospital is expected to be complete by late 2020.
