Sunday, November 17th marked a momentous day for Stony Brook Medicine when the doors to the new Hospital Pavilion were opened to the public. By day’s end, 96 adult and pediatric patients were moved into the new hospital using corridors that led from the old hospital building to the new pavilion. Excitement and energy buzzed throughout the halls while seven departments including Pediatrics, Cardio-thoracic ICR and ICU, Surgical ICR and ICU, and Neuro ICR and ICU, made their way to their new units. The day included a donor Honor Walk and a visit from the Galactic Empire and was attended by the Interim CEO Carol Gomes and many other hospital executives.

This $425M combined project broke ground in November 2013. The Hospital Pavilion is a 225,000-square-foot, 10 floor building with 150 inpatient beds, 2 floors dedicated completely to pediatric care, and large state-of-the-art rooms to care for patients who require intensive and immediate care. The MART is an 8 story, 240,000-square-foot center with the sole purpose to investigate, discover, and drive innovation in adult and pediatric cancer treatment.

HTS Project Manager Ley Anne Merica is thrilled to have been a part of this project for almost four years and was supported by Project Coordinator Tannya Parker, as well as sixteen project specialists. HTS has been working with Stony Brook Medicine since January 2016 and is incredibly privileged to have continued on this journey with Stony Brook and the Long Island community.  Congrats Stony Brook Medicine!
