Hauppauge, NY – June 3, 20243 – Axis Construction Corporation, an award-winning leader in conventional and off-site modular commercial construction for the Northeast, has been chosen to design and build a 20,000 square-foot Women’s Health Suite for New York City Health + Hospitals’ South Brooklyn Hospital.

“This win builds on Axis Construction’s successful track record of delivering award-winning healthcare projects for NYC Health + Hospitals, including the Gotham Health/Vanderbilt Medical Center on Staten Island and the Ida G. Israel Health Center, located just minutes away from South Brooklyn Hospital,” notes Ralph Lambert, President & CEO of Axis Construction Corporation.

Peter Cannuscio, PE, Executive Vice President & COO of Axis Construction Corporation, the Project Executive Lead, adds: “We’re excited that more and more industries are embracing the growing trend of the Design Build delivery method. Qualified, experienced, and integrated Owner/Contractor and Design Teams allow for the best practice of full project collaboration. When problems arise, problems get solved…together, proactively. We are proud to capitalize on our design/build expertise in healthcare construction and look forward to working with our client, New York Health + Hospitals, to help bring this expansion of women’s health services before, during, and after childbirth to the south Brooklyn community.”

To respond to the 35% increase in births over the past two years, the project will grow South Brooklyn Hospital’s current 11,000 square-foot women’s health suite—which has 20 exam rooms, three of which are treatment rooms—to 28 exam rooms, six ultrasound rooms, six procedure rooms and staff education and counseling areas.

The NYC Health + Hospitals’ public hospital system board approved the $25 million contract to Axis Construction Corporation, which includes construction costs of $23 million and a $2 million contingency fee, on Thursday, May 31, 2024. Construction is projected to begin this summer under the three-year contract, which provides the opportunity for renewal for the following two years.
