In the heart of New York City, the Kimmel Pavilion stands as one of America's most modern and advanced healthcare facilities. This is where Dr. Goldstein's patients recover from surgery. But what makes this facility so remarkable? Let us embark on a journey of discovery.

The Kimmel Pavilion is a key part of NYU Langone Healthcare; it is a testament to the power of innovation and the relentless pursuit of excellence. It is a state-of-the-art, 830,000-square-foot facility, designed with a singular purpose: to provide world-class patient care. But how does it achieve this lofty goal?

The Pavilion is home to 374 exclusively single-bedded rooms. This design choice is not merely for comfort, but serves a critical function: it greatly enhances infection control. By reducing the risk of infection, the healing process is expedited, leading to improved patient outcomes. Furthermore, this layout allows for a more efficient workflow for staff in each room, and can better accommodate a patient’s family and visitors.

The Kimmel Pavilion is also one of the most digitally integrated and sophisticated inpatient facilities in the country. This is in keeping with Dr. Goldstein's use of the most advanced surgical techniques. The Pavilion's technology is designed to maximize the level of care for each patient. The high-efficiency operating rooms are standardized but also flexible enough to quickly adapt to specific uses as needed. This layout optimizes efficiency by moving patients around less, bringing patient care equipment to the bedside, and freeing clinical staff to spend more time caring for patients.

The Kimmel Pavilion is a LEED Platinum certified building, designed with sustainability in mind. This commitment to environmental stewardship is a reflection of NYU Langone’s broader mission to serve, teach, and discover.

In recognition of its top-quality care, the Kimmel Pavilion has received the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission, advanced certification in ventricular assist device for advanced heart failure from The Joint Commission, and Magnet® recognition for excellence in nursing for the fourth consecutive time by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
