September 4, 2008

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg today joined with members of the New York Mets, patients, physicians, administrators, trustees and other supporters of the North Shore-LIJ Health System in breaking ground on Long Island Jewish Medical Center’s Katz Women’s Hospital. The hospital is to be housed in a new $300 million, 10-story pavilion being built in front of the existing 54-year-old hospital in Queens.

Later this month, construction will begin on the Katz Women’s Hospital at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY, a rendering of which appears in the foreground as North Shore-LIJ President and CEO Michael Dowling addresses the crowd.
