Beth Israel has been an important go-to medical center for Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village residents for decades. To better serve the community in keeping with modern medical practices, the Mount Sinai Health System is investing $500 million to create an expanded network of state-of-the-art facilities river to river below 34th Street.
However, this investment involves downsizing the current hospital at 16th Street and First Avenue.
The number of beds will go from 825 to 70.
A new hospital with inpatient beds, procedure and operating rooms, and new emergency room will be constructed at 13th Street and Second Avenue.
The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary will be modernized and expanded.
Certain procedures now offered will not be available at the new facility.
There are reasons for the restructuring, but you need to know what, why, when, where, and how.
The STPCV Tenants Association has arranged for a presentation by MSBIMC specifically for our residents.
Date: Wednesday, July 13
Time: 6:30 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Where: Podell Auditorium, the Bernstein Building, 1 Nathan D. Perlman Place (one block west of First Avenue), between 15th and 16th Streets.
