Institutional | DORMITORY AUTHORITY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK – GOUVERNEUR HEALTHCARE SERVICES Big Apple Care H ealthcare jobs seem to bring out the best in everyone involved with the project. Whether it is the knowledge that the finished product will help others heal from various maladies or interacting with the patients and personnel who will benefit from the project while working adjacent to a fully occupied facility, healthcare projects usually generate extra care and concern from team members. That is the case at Gouverneur Healthcare Services. Along with modernizing the existing facility and adding 108,000 square feet, this project has brought out the best of those who live and work in the area surrounding the health center’s location in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and New York City’s Chinatown. “I grew up on the Lower East Side and my father took me here when it was a hospital,” says Eugene Leung, senior project manager for the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY). “When I was assigned to the project, I knew it was perfect for me, knowing that over 65 percent of the clientele is of Chinese decent.” The most apparent influence of the surrounding community will be the feng shui elements brought to the table by Master Pun Yin, who is based in New York City. Yin’s consultation led to the addition of water features to the lobbies, suggested artwork and plantings with natural settings, lots of natural light brought to the interior through skylights, atrium,large windows and natural ventilation through operable windows.

The center will also feature a 30,000-square-foot women’s and children’s center, a dialysis center, a CT scan area and space for a full-spectrum ambulatory surgery center. The project includes a new nursing facility that will increase The Residence at Gouverneur Court’s bed capacity from 210 to 295. The increased number of beds is meant to accommodate the growing aging population in New York City, according to the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC). This particularly applies to the Chinese Americans and Latinos that Gouverneur Healthcare usually treats, HHC adds. “In fiscal year 2007, Gouverneur had a 98 percent occupancy rate for its long-term care beds,” HHC adds. “The new space will have the feel and amenities of an apartment building Community Asset Breaking ground in September 2008, the project involves the renovation of the existing 316,000-square-foot ambulatory care pavilion, which will be renamed The Center for Community Health and Wellness. This Gouverneur Healthcare will increase the number of beds from 210 to 295. « »The hospital nowforhas a family lounge patients’ loved ones. CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM DECEMBER 2009
