A hospital in New York City will get a brand new medical center with “superior,” according to a report in The New York Times.
Lourdes Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, received a $3.2 million grant from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which is helping to renovate and upgrade its aging facilities.
The hospital’s hospital was already ranked among the top five hospitals in the nation, but the new funding will help make it a model of care for other large hospitals.
The new facility will be located in a renovated portion of the hospital’s building, according to the Times.
“We want to be a model for others to replicate,” Lourds director of patient care, Mary Ochs, told the paper.
“It’s not just about us; it’s about the community as well.”
The Times reported that the hospital has received more than $10 million in federal funds over the past five years to renovating the aging hospital.
It is the second time the hospital received the money.
It was awarded a similar grant in 2013, and last year the hospital was given a $6 million grant to improve its medical services.
“This is a great investment in the future of Lourd, a great example of the commitment and creativity that the New York community has shown in supporting this institution,” Lours CEO, Robert J. Ochsen, said in a statement.
“The new facilities will help Lourdos medical workforce expand its patient care capabilities and bring new life to its existing facilities.”
A new facility opened at Lourderes hospital in Brooklyn in 2015.
