We’re proud to share Mount Sinai Medical Center officially cut the ribbon for its new Skolnick Surgical Tower and Hildebrandt Emergency Center today. The project is set to transform Mount Sinai’s main campus in Miami Beach. The 340,000 sf expansion enhances Mount Sinai’s ability to deliver high-quality medical care to patients in its diverse community. The South Florida Business Journal covered the event and took numerous photos.

“This project is a remarkable moment for Mount Sinai Medical Center,” said Natalie Petzoldt, Principal for CannonDesign, and Principal on the project. “The new tower empowers Mount Sinai to enhance the care they bring to their patients and community. From day one, Mount Sinai’s team stood committed to creating a leading-edge health facility that would transform their campus, and it’s wonderful to see that vision and commitment realized.”

The new emergency center spanning 35,000 sf across 50 treatment bays that essentially triples the size of Mount Sinai’s current facility to accommodate up to 75,000 annual patient visits. The new surgical tower equipped with 154 private rooms, including larger VIP suites, and 12 large contemporary operating rooms offers striking views of nearby Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. The entire facility is designed to embrace flexibility and resiliency, ensuring access to high-quality care for generations to come.

“Healthcare evolves rapidly and this project equips Mount Sinai to respond swiftly and effectively to whatever the future brings,” said James Gordon, Senior Vice President for CannonDesign, and Project Manager for the project. “Every aspect of the project is designed to enhance the patient, caregiver and visitor experience.”

CannonDesign provided architecture, engineering, interior and lighting design services for Mount Sinai’s new surgical tower and emergency center. The project will welcome its first patients on Sat., Feb. 2.
