Medicine in Minutes: A New Paradigm in Healthcare New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council’s (NYHTC) Brooklyn Health Center

Sep 01, 2023

New York Hotel Trades Council (NYHTC) endeavored to relocate and expand its Brooklyn Health Center location and selected a new parcel of land in the BAM cultural district. This new center would utilize a health and wellness model that was designed to keep patients out of hospitals and would be set up for patient care by disease type with a multispecialty model comprised of a diverse clinical care team versus separate primary care and specialty practices. NYHTC’s goal of “Medicine in minutes” rather than hours was a key element. The new Brooklyn Health Center embodies new and innovative ambulatory care design. From the operational model, to technology, to the design approach, each element that has been added supports the goals that the health center was attempting to achieve.
