Jill Lerner Presents the Repositioning of Mount Sinai Tisch Cancer Hospital

On April 11th, the KPF Principal spoke at “Healthcare Hits the Reset Button” in New York City about the firm’s work on the hospital transformation.

The session, titled “Mount Sinai Tisch Cancer Hospital – A Repositioning Story,” provided insight into the process of converting the 1960s hospital building into a state-of-the-art treatment center. The site is located within Mount Sinai’s campus on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, and as a busy academic medical center, it often runs at a medical-surgical occupancy in excess of 95%. Jill spoke to the design and transformation of the hospital, its unique location, and the challenges of continuing to provide care during its renovation.

Jill was joined by Douglas E. Carney, AIA, MBA, System Senior Vice President – Real Estate & Facilities, Chief Facilities Officer, Mount Sinai Health System; Michael Delaney, Executive Vice President, LF Driscoll Healthcare; David L. Reich, M.D., President, The Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Queens; and Leanna Sullivan, Vice President, HKS. Marissa Kelly, Project Executive, LF Driscoll Healthcare, moderated the event.

Sponsored by the Association of Medical Facility Professionals, SquareFootage, and VirtualCast, the event took place on April 11 from 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM EDT at the Lowenstein Building, Fordham University Lincoln Center Campus in New York. Learn more here.
