New York University Medical Center
Rusk Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine
New York, NY

The Rusk Institute is a 6-story 100,000 sq.ft. rehabilitation facility for
people with disabilities. The original facility had been built in the
1960's and renovated in bits and pieces as needs required it. FRK was hired
to design the complete renovation of three floors including one entire floor
of pediatric spaces.

The work includes new nurses stations, new private rooms, conversion of
older "ward" rooms into semi-private rooms, renovated corridors, and support
spaces. New systems (such as sprinkler, nurse call and fire alarm) and
asbestos abatement are also being coordinated with the work. To maintain as
much of the space for continuous use during construction as possible, the
work is being elaborately phased over three years of construction.

This work is one of three major projects Rosenberg Kolb is currently working
on at NYU Medical Center. The two others are new Labor and Delivery Rooms
and support spaces at the Tisch Hospital, and renovated offices for the
Maternal Fetal Medicine Practice.
