Inspired by the tranquility of a spa environment, the Weill Greenberg Center was designed to create the optimal patient experience.
Stress reducing elements such as water features, clear signage and wayfinding and art are located throughout the space to provide a spa-like environment. The complex program for this 15-story building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side includes general and diagnostic cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, in vitro fertilization, lipids, neurology, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, pain management, radiological services and clinical skills education.
Designed in partnership with Polshek Partnership Architects, the facility provides the Medical College with essential space to expand program, improve clinical practice operations and sustain the academic mission. The Weill Greenberg Center was designated a Pebble Project and was evaluated throughout the design and construction process for its contribution to evidence-based design. Research shows that a well-designed facility can reduce stress in healthcare workers and improve patient safety. Large windows on the perimeter providing views of the city maximize daylight, and orient patients and visitors. Small details in the Weill Greenberg Center – such as translucent art walls, comfortable furnishings arranged in clusters, access to technology, and comprehensive, private staff facilities – contribute to the high standard of care provided by this outpatient facility.
