The Los Angeles-based firm AECOM will provide "planning, medical engineering, design, project management, interior fit-out, cost estimating, project cost model and risk registry services" for both the new MART building and patient tower at Stony Brook University Hospital, the firm announced Thursday.
The MART (Medical and Research Translation) building and new patient tower will combine to be a 150-bed, 465,000-square-foot, $275 million addition to the hospital; the MART will house the center for advanced medical imaging and cancer care, while the new patient tower will house the children's hospital and other intensive care units.
This new project provides a vital addition to Stony Brook University and the region's health care infrastructure, and we are excited to be making a positive difference in the community," John M. Dionisio, AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said in a statement.
AECOM said it previously provided master planning services for the hospital. According to the company, the MART building and new patient tower will be completed in 2016.
Part of the funding for the MART is coming from the NYSUNY 2020 grant that the state awarded to Stony Brook University in December of 2011.
