$8.5M Recovery Unit Completed At North Shore’s Katz Women’s Hospital

Northwell Health donor Saul Katz, right, gets a tour of the Katz Women’s Hospital’s new operating room at North Shore University Hospital from Dr. Michael Nimaroff, the health system’s senior vice president and executive director of obstetrics and gynecology.

North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) recently opened a new patient recovery area and operating room in the labor and delivery unit of Katz Women’s Hospital. The $8.5 million upgrade to the women’s hospital’s third floor added 5,000 square feet to an eight-bed, post-anesthesia recovery unit and a new labor and delivery operating room containing three infant resuscitation bays, which helps reduce the time to transport newborns to the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Originally opened in 2011, the three-story Katz Women’s Hospital at NSUH features 73 single-bed rooms, postpartum and high-risk antepartum units for prolonged hospitals stays, a 51-bed NICU and nursery. The hospital delivered more than 6,800 babies in 2018—collectively, Northwell’s 11 hospitals with maternity units delivered more than 39,200 babies in 2018, representing 17 percent of all babies born in New York State and 1 percent of births nationally.

The NSUH project is part of a more than $212 million investment that Northwell Health is making in expanding and renovating maternity units at six of the health system’s hospitals on Long Island, in New York City and Westchester County.

“Northwell’s commitment to the care of women and newborns is evidenced by our substantial financial investment into our maternity services and programs which set a new standard of care for our patients,” said Michael Nimaroff, MD, senior vice president and executive director of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwell Health. “We are upgrading our maternity units to be private rooms, which allows babies to stay with their mothers for the majority of their stay, encouraging breast feeding and recognizing the importance of bonding between mother and baby.”
