Originally designed by Albert Ledner as the headquarters of the National Maritime Union and district hiring hall for local maritime trades, this 160,000-square-foot facility underwent an adaptive reuse to provide three primary medical services: the first freestanding, 24-hour emergency department in the New York metropolitan area; a full-service imaging center featuring digital x-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound; and a specialized ambulatory surgery facility focusing on interventional treatments for the sick and elderly. The interior reflects the underlying themes of the original program and design: the sea, ships, and circular shapes.

Original Architect: Albert Ledner, 1964
Renovation Architect: Perkins Eastman, 2015
