Covering an entire city block, the Henry J. Carter Specialty Hospital & Nursing Facility is comprised of two distinct facilities: a new Skilled Nursing Facility and a 270,000 SF complete renovation of a community hospital to be repurposed as a Long-Term Acute Care facility. Array was engaged to design both facilities with the charge to create a seamless transition between the facilities while simultaneously supporting the distinct requirements of two different patient populations, staff and guests.
With a single main entrance, we immediately create the impression of a unified facility. To enhance the connectivity and sense of community, a concourse connects each building and offers a “main street” of activities for patients of both the Skilled Nursing Facility and Long-Term Acute Care Hospital as well as their visitors.
A joint project between the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation and the New York City Economic Development Corporation, this is one of the first publicly funded projects in New York City to be delivered utilizing Integrated Project Delivery methods.
