NYU Langone Seeks State Approval for $32.9M Essex Crossing Outpatient Facility

More health care services are on the way to the Lower East Side.

A year after the deal first made headlines, NYU Langone now seeks approval from the state Department of Health to construct its $32.9 million facility inside Essex Crossing. The new program – identified as an outpatient ambulatory surgery center – will consume 55,000 square-feet of real estate at 175 Delancey Street (aka Site 6).

According to a report in Crain’s yesterday, NYU Langone’s certificate-of-need application specifies that the care center will specialize in gynecologic, ENT, and orthopedic surgery, according to NYU Langone’s certificate-of-need application.

Its arrival is seen by some as a boost in the wake of the area drought in health care. Namely, the sale of Rivington House into condos, and the downsizing of Beth Israel on 16th Street.

The new center will provide additional surgical capacity for NYU Langone, which said in its application that it has been constrained by limited space at its East 38th Street Center for Musculoskeletal Care and ambulatory surgery facility. The center will provide an outpatient alternative to NYU’s Hospital for Joint Diseases on East 17th Street.

Residents within the boundaries of Manhattan community district 3, which includes the Lower East Side and Chinatown, had about 9,600 physical therapy visits at NYU Langone locations during the last fiscal year, which ended Aug. 31

As previously reported, the NYU Langone satellite campus will share Site 6 (Clinton Street) with a 14-story building that houses a senior center (100% affordable), fifth-floor garden terrace, and community space for the Grand Street Settlement.

The center is scheduled to open in late 2018.
