NYU Langone Medical Center Facilities

NYU Langone Medical Center includes Tisch Hospital, Rusk Rehabilitation, Hospital for Joint Diseases, NYU Lutheran Medical Center, and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone. NYU Langone is ranked #10 nationwide by U.S. News and World Report and is nationally ranked in ten specialties, including cancer.

Inpatient Clinical Facilities

Tisch Hospital is a tertiary care facility that draws patients from New York City and the surrounding tri-state area. The ninth floor houses the current pediatric inpatient unit, PICU, and NICU.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue is the flagship of the NYC Health + Hospitals system, which has provided care to the inner city population of New York for over 200 years.

Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone is designed specifically to accommodate the needs of young patients and their families. It will be part of NYU Langone’s Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion, which is scheduled to open in 2017 at the corner of 34th Street and First Avenue in Manhattan. A hospital within a hospital, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital will feature all private rooms. The objective is to create a dedicated healing environment addressing the special medical, surgical, and psychological needs of children.

Designed to be uniquely child-friendly and family-oriented, the new Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital will provide a separate street entrance and elevator lobby exclusive to pediatric services, a pediatric procedures center, as well as dedicated pediatric acute care and intensive care units; overnight accommodations for a parent, if desired, for a child’s entire hospital stay; a family center; teen room; resource library; consult rooms; and quiet lounge area and a landscaped outdoor garden with sweeping city views.

NYU Lutheran and Woodhull Medical Centers: NYU Lutheran Medical Center system is now a full partner with NYU Langone and it is envisioned that outpatient services for hematology–oncology will be offered in the future. A weekly hematology clinic is held at Woodhull Medical Center. While these sites will not be staffed by postdoctoral fellows, the two institutions are major referral sources for the program.

Outpatient Clinical Facilities

The Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders: The center’s goal is to eradicate the physical and emotional burden of serious illness for patients and families. Multidisciplinary care is provided by a team of on-site physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, administrative staff, clinical research coordinators, social workers, neuropsychologists, child life therapists, a nutritionist, and physical therapists.  The hub of our outpatient activities has dedicated exam rooms, an infusion center, playroom, teen center, wellness center, library, and clinical trials office.

Perlmutter Cancer Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and features a translational research program that brings together laboratory scientists and clinical researchers. The result is the latest advances in cancer care are delivered in a caring and compassionate setting. Adult cancer patients with solid tumors and hematological malignancies are seen at two sites located on 34th and 38th Streets respectively.

Research Facilities

Perlmutter Cancer Center: The pediatric oncology program is an integral part of this National Cancer Institute-designated center and has access to all its facilities. Division members have laboratory space integrated within a community of cancer biologists located within the Smilow Research building. In addition the pediatric oncology program is a member of the children's oncology group, the neurofibromatosis consortium, and the pediatric blood and marrow transplant consortium, where many of our faculty engage in clinical trials development.

Research Laboratories are housed in NYU School of Medicine, the Skirball Institute for Biomolecular Medicine, Tisch Hospital, and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. The Smilow Research Institute, which opened in 2006, and cancer center research laboratories are also located here. The Division supports basic science efforts in leukemia and neuro-oncology, among others.

A new science building is under construction encompassing more than 365,000 square feet and 10 floors of laboratory space dedicated to research, including wet laboratory space, core facilities, a new vivarium, conference spaces, and public amenities in an expansive, integrated environment. Positioned at 30th Street and the FDR Service Road, just south of the Joan and Joel Smilow Research Center, the Science Building will serve as the centerpiece of NYU Langone’s transformation at the southernmost end of the main campus, and will provide a prominent new gateway to research and education on campus.

The building’s design will help strategically integrate research facilities and services so that investigators, students, faculty, and clinicians can work more efficiently and collaboratively. Its laboratory floors are designed to be open, efficient, flexible, and easily adaptable, with cutting-edge, shared equipment to accommodate advances in research over time. Once opened, the research space dedicated to cancer will double.

All of the buildings listed above are within walking distance of each other.
