The NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns is dedicated to the healthcare needs of mothers and their babies. The 246,500 SF facility offers the full range of services that may be needed before, during, and after childbirth—including specialized prenatal care and neonatal intensive care for newborns in need of extra support.
The new hospital graces the top six floors of the David H. Koch Center and continues the successful design template of the Center’s ambulatory care floors with on-stage/off-stage flows and corridors along the exterior walls – allowing for stunning views of New York City and natural light-filled sky lobbies and circulation spaces.
The hospital is designed to provide patient‐focused care to reduce maternal stress and incorporate the family in the healing process with serene individual rooms and support areas. It features 75 private antepartum and postpartum rooms with bassinets; 60 newborn intensive care beds in the Level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU); 16 labor and delivery rooms; five C-section operating rooms; and 20 triage/prep/recovery rooms. It is the first hospital in the city to have MRI capabilities and a multi-purpose operating room with fixed imaging in its NICU.
