This session focuses on the NYU Langone Health Kimmel Pavilion and how infection prevention and facilities/engineering played a role in the design of the layout, circulation, infrastructure, and finishes. Priorities were set early on establishing infection prevention as s primary consideration for planning and design decisions. This direction and commitment allowed the design team to develop a full building approach to infection prevention. Attendees will gain insight into the multi-disciplinary approach through diagrams, floor plans, photographs, and post-occupancy evaluation material.
1.) Discover how NYU Langone Health established infection prevention as a priority in the design of its new building.
2.) Describe the systems approach taken in the design of a new inpatient and surgical tower with infection prevention as a primary focus.
3.) Identify the planning, adjacencies, circulation, and flows within the building.
4.) Establish a new base minimum for infection prevention within a new facility.
