A major transformation and expansion project will soon go forward at the Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley Mary’s Avenue Campus in Kingston.
The $92 million project at the former Benedictine Hospital received contingency approval from the New York State Department of Health. The project includes a new four-story tower and 437,000 square feet of space. The space will be filled with 200 hospital beds, an intensive care unit, an advanced endoscopy services center and a state-of-the-art emergency department.
“Our plan is for HealthAlliance to be in Kingston, reliably serving the community, for generations to come,” said Michael D. Israel, President and CEO of WMCHealth. “The project is a bold embodiment of WMCHealth’s commitment to state-of-the-art construction and technology, coupled with the highest standards of service, clinical quality and patient safety.”
The project is expected to be completed in 2020. The current hospital on the Broadway Campus will be transformed into a medical village.
Other WMCHealth investments in the Hudson Valley include a $40 million expansion of Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis that will also include a medical village and a just-completed $8 million renovation of MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie. WMCHealth is also investing $230 million on its flagship campus in Valhalla, with the construction of the 280,000 square-foot Ambulatory Care Pavilion, Westchester County’s largest healthcare construction project in decades.
