MEDICAL COLLEGE PURCHASES BUILDING, EXPANDS CAMPUS REACH
April 10, 2013, VALHALLA, NY—–New York Medical College has announced the purchase of a 248,000-square foot building to provide upgraded and more flexible space planning for its growing enterprise.
“This is an auspicious day for New York Medical College,” said Alan Kadish, M.D., president of New York Medical College and the Touro College and University System “The addition of this prime real estate will open up a wealth of opportunities for new programs we are developing, as well as easing the crowded conditions currently experienced in some of the older buildings on campus. We are committed to developing our enterprise in ways that support and enhance our ability to fulfill the nation’s need for health care professionals, and these modern facilities offer the flexibility and growth potential we have been seeking.”
The newly acquired five-story building, located at 19 Skyline Drive in Hawthorne, N.Y., sits adjacent to the campus. The property consists of 12 acres off Route 9A, and houses a 115-seat auditorium/conference room, a fitness center, a cafeteria with a café annex and an 80-seat outdoor dining plaza, and a 720-space parking lot. In the near future it will be connected to Sunshine Cottage Road via a paved roadway with a sidewalk.
Plans are still being finalized, but College officials say they expect renovations to take place this summer, and to begin moving faculty and staff to the Skyline Drive building in September.
