Complete Vassar Brothers Medical Center Expansion

POUGHKEEPSIE, New York – January 29, 2013 – Vassar Brothers Medical Center’s new campus expansion in Poughkeepsie, completed by the design-build team of Kirchhoff Consigli Construction Management (KCCM) of Pleasant Valley, New York and Steffian Bradley Architects of Boston, Massachusetts, offers a comfortable and welcoming new facility, winning over fans of both patients and staff.

Built to meet increased patient demand for the Mid-Hudson Valley regional medical center, the campus includes a new four-story, 100,000 square foot Daniel Z. Aronzon Ambulatory Surgery Center, a new free-standing 5,000 square-foot cafeteriabuilding to service the entire Medical Center, and two new parking structures.

The Daniel Z. Aronzon Ambulatory Surgery Center, a 25,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, houses five operating/procedural suites, surgical preparatory and recovery units, a family waiting lounge and medical/administrative offices.

The expansion also includes a new much-needed five-story, 867-vehicle employee parking garage to accommodate the Center’s large staff.  The pre-cast concrete structure’s design resembles a three-story building.

Located adjacent to the Medical Office Building, a new 266-space parking deck for patients was designed as a counterpart to the employee parking garage.  The free-standing café building links the larger buildings with new pedestrian area, walkways and outdoor seating.

Patient response to the new Center has been enthusiastic. To view a video Vassar Brothers Medical Center posted highlighting the new center.
