On Saturday, March 21st, the new MRI was delivered to Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns, NewYork-Presbyterian’s newest in-patient facility which is set to open later this year. This event required coordination between HTS, NYP, TurnerConstruction, JCDuggan, and Siemens Imaging to plan. It was truly a team effort to lift the nearly 4.5 ton magnet to the 15th Floor (278.5 ft. from street level). It required 2 cranes (1 helper crane to assemble the main crane), 6 tractor trailers (1 for the magnet), a 15-person rigging crew, and multiple safety and security personnel. The operation took approximately 11 hours Start-to-Finish.
