Medical facilities could improve New York healthcare experience

Development of medical office buildings in New York City could make it easier for residents there to see a physician, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, which cites healthcare real estate data from Revista, more than 3.4 million square feet of medical office space costing $1.8 billion is currently being developed in the New York City area.

Maimonides Medical Center, for instance, has broke ground on a new $100 million facility in Borough Park, Brooklyn that will allow patients to visit a wide range of interconnected healthcare providers in the same place. The facility will include special teaming areas "intended to improve communication between (physicians), nurses and staff," according to the report.

Additionally, Mount Sinai Queens, in Astoria, demolished a historic medical building two years ago to make way for a $125 million expansion that will offer primary and specialty outpatient service, according to the report.
