Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at NY-P
|Location:||New York, NY|
|Architect:||Davis Brody Bond|
The nine-story 265,000 sf Morgan Stanley New York Presbyterian building has 100 medical-surgical beds, 41 pediatric critical-care beds and 50 neonatal critical-care beds, as well as a meditation room, conference rooms and meeting rooms on each floor. On the street level there is a canopied drive-in area with valet parking.
The architects for the New York Presbyterian children’s hospital were guided by two principles: first, that the new building’s architecture character and quality should be seen as an extension of the original 1928 Babies Hospital and, next, that the new building should have a recognizable identity of its own. In the end, masonry gables and a copper-finish roof structure were created so that the hospital can be identified from a distance.
