LET THE FACE LIFT BEGIN: STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL RESUMES $300 MILLION PROJECT CONSTRUCTION

4/24/2006


Major modernization efforts are most ambitious to date; patient and visitor access to change

STONY BROOK, NY – April 21, 2006 – Stony Brook University Hospital’s Major Modernization Project (MMP) is in its fourth year of implementation. Phase I of the main component of the MMP – a 150,000 square foot expansion and renovation of the hospital lobby and surgical suite – began April 3. The hospital lobby and surgical suite will be built-out from their existing locations on Levels 5 and 4 respectively. Since the surgical suite is beneath the main entry's circular drive, significant excavation in front of the hospital will be required.

The new entrance and lobby will significantly enhance the size, amenities and appearance of the lobby and public waiting areas, including a covered walkway from the parking garage to the new hospital lobby. The newly expanded and renovated Surgical Suite will include 22 operating rooms and is designed to accommodate minimally invasive surgical equipment and emerging imaging-assisted procedures.

The expansion and renovation of the lobby and surgical suite, which includes considerable excavation, requires the closure of the main hospital traffic circle and the construction of a temporary entrance and temporary walkway/bridge. The traffic circle will close the week of April 24.

With the closing of the main hospital traffic circle, SBUH is alerting patients, visitors, employees and the entire community about important access modifications. Directional signage will support these measures en route to the hospital garage.

Hospital Access
Patient and taxi drop-offs will be moved to newly designated space on the first level of the hospital parking garage, free of charge up to 15 minutes; A vehicular “No Standing Rule” will be in effect in front of the hospital entrance; Valet services are available for patient and visitor convenience. Employees utilizing the Hospital parking garage will continue to do so; and, Vendors will continue to use the hospital loading dock for all deliveries.
Patient Discharge Area
On April 24, the patient discharge area will move to a brand new entrance and parking accommodations on Level 2 of the Hospital. To access this new entrance and parking lot which is located off of East Loop Road/Health Sciences Drive, go west on to Loading Dock Road and make an immediate left into first parking lot. Follow signs for patient discharge area. Inside the hospital, take the main hospital elevator from any floor to hospital level 2. Make a left out of the elevator and your first left, continue to the end of the hallway to the new entrance and discharge area.
