Hospital Leadership Tours River Building
By Rita K. Devine MPA, RN

On Thursday, September 6, 2018, 15 adventurers donned hard hats, day glow vests, and sensible shoes to set out for a tour of the new River Building. Although still under construction, following the guidance of Ana Heghes, Project Manager of Planning and Construction, we covered all 2 acres of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation – David Rockefeller River Campus. Despite the ongoing construction, we could still appreciate the well thought-out details of design, ecology, beauty, and function. The open floorplan of the 135,000 sq. ft. Marie-Josee and Henry R. Kravis Research Building showcases the flexibility offered for the changing needs of researchers. The magnificent gardens of the green roof offer stunning views of the East River and seating areas to collaborate or contemplate. We look forward to the campus opening ceremony in the spring.
