New York Daily News-Mount Sinai Hospital Seeking Green Light For Expansion

 – March 13, 2012 /Press Release/  –– 

A western Queens hospital expansion is gaining traction in the community as state officials continue to mull the proposal. Mount Sinai Hospital Queens is seeking regulatory approval for a $113 million development that would add 95,000 square feet to its existing facility, state officials said. The proposal, filed in December, was prompted by a population boom in the area that has put a premium on hospital beds, said hospital spokeswoman Shelly Felder. “We just need more space. We’re very tight in our emergency room department,” said Felder. Officials with the state Department of Health said some of the factors being weighed are financial feasibility and need. - Shelly Felder, Senior Director, Marketing and Communications, Mount Sinai Queens
