New York Presbyterian Hospital

The Project

Ushering in a new era in comprehensive cardiac care, the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital officially opened to patients and their families in February 2010. 

A five-story, 142,000-square-foot building, it links two buildings, Milstein Hospital and Irving Pavilion, creating a new entrance that improves public access. It was designed by award-winning architects Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and daSILVA Architects. Located on Fort Washington Avenue and 165th Street in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood, it features a dramatic glass curtain façade and offers sweeping views of the Hudson River.
