The entire façade was given a facelift with new entrances, canopy structures, and metal and wood-panel cladding
When Northwell Health needed a location for a new ambulatory surgery center, they looked no further than their own inventory of real estate—and found the answer in a less than obvious place. A former car dealership structure, acquired by the health system years ago and used as an ambulance fleet maintenance shop, was the unlikely but ideal facility.
The two structures include a single-story former showroom facing the street and a high-bay service garage sitting several feet lower. The site, which slopes away from the street, and the straddled building provided two unique opportunities. With the change in elevation, the site creates natural discretion for patients as they leave surgery. At the same time, the high-bay service garage has ample ceiling space to support all the equipment necessary for a surgical suite.
Taking advantage of an otherwise challenging building configuration, the planning was arranged to allow a singular flow-through; patients enter registration and the waiting room through the upper-level entrance canopy and leave discreetly from the lower level. With five new operating rooms, twenty patient holding bays, and on-site instrument processing, the ambulatory surgery center at Syosset provides a powerful platform for outpatient surgery in a very prominent, convenient, yet unassuming location.
