Coney Island Hospital
Critical Care Structure
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), acting on behalf of NYC Health + Hospitals (H+H), is currently overseeing a construction project aimed at enhancing the resiliency of Coney Island Hospital (CIH). The primary objective of this effort is to ensure that the facility can return to full operation as quickly as possible following the coastal flooding experienced during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.
Within the framework of BR+A Consulting Engineers, DM Engineers PLLC plays a crucial role by providing construction administration and engineering support for various aspects of the project. This support includes the modification of the central plant and distribution systems within the existing building, as well as the installation of new equipment that will serve the new CIH Critical Care Structure (CSS).
DM Engineers PLLC is responsible for several important tasks, including MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) BIM (Building Information Modeling) coordination and engineering support during the construction phase of the project. This involvement ensures that the various systems and components are integrated effectively, maximizing efficiency and functionality.
The scope of the project is comprehensive and includes the construction of a new Emergency Department, private patient rooms, eighty acute care beds, eight operating rooms, a twelve-bay Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), CT Scan and MRI facilities, Radiology services, a labor and delivery suite, endoscopy facilities, sixty-four behavioral health beds, and a clinical laboratory equipped with the latest technology, among other features.
By enhancing the resiliency of Coney Island Hospital and expanding its capabilities, this project will enable the facility to better serve the healthcare needs of the community while ensuring its ability to respond effectively to future challenges, such as severe weather events.
