Stony Brook Medicine is embarking upon a $423 million expansion project from 2013 to 2016, consisting of a new Medical and Research Translation (MART) building and Hospital Pavilion, including a new Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.
The MART is made possible by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the State University of New York under the leadership of Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher, through a $35 million NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant, and $50 million in support through an historic $150 million gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons. The Hospital Pavilion and Children’s Hospital are made possible by $53 million in support from New York State Senators Kenneth LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) and John Flanagan (R-Northport).
With 245,000 square feet, the eight-story MART will be located on Stony Brook University’s East Campus, home of Stony Brook Medicine, adjacent to the Hospital and Health Sciences Towers. The MART will be a home for understanding the basis for human disease, where scientific discovery will be translated into clinical research, and where promising patient results can be turned into FDA-approved healthcare diagnostic and treatment options.
As part of its core mission, the MART will be devoted to cancer research and care, including the new home for the Stony Brook University Cancer Center. The MART will also house advanced biomedical imaging and biomedical informatics, including a PET/CT scanner.
With 225,000 square feet, the 10-story Hospital Pavilion will contain 150 inpatient beds. Two floors will be dedicated to a new Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The Pavilion will also include a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, adolescent unit, procedure suite, hematology/oncology unit, medical/surgical units, an expanded imaging department, and state-of-the-art adult critical care and cardiac care units. The expansion also includes 12 new classrooms and a 300-seat auditorium.
