As part of a historic partnership with St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers and the Rudin family, the North Shore-LIJ Health System is proposing to invest more than $100 million to develop a state-of-the-art neighborhood medical complex at the National Maritime Building on the former St. Vincent's campus.

The 160,000-square-foot landmark building, located on the west Side of 7th Avenue between 12th and 13th Streets, would include:

  • The first free-standing, around-the-clock Emergency Department in the New York metropolitan area
  • A full-service Imaging Center featuring digital x-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound
  • A specialized ambulatory surgery facility focusing on interventional treatments for the sick and elderly
