NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns Opens-A New Center for Exceptional, Personalized Care
August 3, 2020
NEW YORK, NY (August 3, 2020) - NewYork-Presbyterian today celebrated the opening of the NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to providing exceptional, individualized care to pregnant women and their newborn babies before, during, and after childbirth—including advanced care for high-risk pregnancies and newborns who require extra support.
Located on the top six floors of the NewYork-Presbyterian David H. Koch Center, the 246,500-square-foot hospital’s 75 antepartum and postpartum rooms allow every patient to have their own room, promoting privacy, family bonding and comfort. The 60-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) also features private rooms. The new hospital’s Level IV NICU—offering the highest level of critical care for newborns—is the first in New York City that has a dedicated MRI and operating room right in the NICU.
The new facility, which opened on August 2, nearly triples the space currently available for the care of pregnant women and newborns at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and will accommodate more than 7,000 births a year. It is part of a systemwide initiative to enhance obstetric services across NewYork-Presbyterian’s campuses.
