The Velez Organization represented the Dormitory Authority State of New York and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation as the Construction Manager for the $70 million dollar new Queens Hospital Center Ambulatory Care Pavilion.
Officially open to the public in January 2007, the new $53 million, 142,000-square-foot Pavilion fully complements Queens Hospital’s commitment to patient-centered care by unifying and consolidating services previously offered throughout its sprawling campus.
Standing six stories high, the Pavilion features vibrant, welcoming exam rooms and accommodates the hospital’s primary care, pediatric, psychiatry, ophthalmology and dentistry clinics, behavioral health clinics, day programs, staff education areas, administrative offices, and the Diabetes Center of Excellence. The Pavilion is connected to the main hospital building by two large, enclosed walkways or bridges that provide easy access for patients and staff. The center will better serve an increased number of patients and expects more than 135,000 patient visits annually.
