NEW YORK (AP) - The NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is celebrating the opening of a new ambulatory care facility.

Officials said Tuesday that the NewYork-Presbyterian David H. Koch Center will serve as a one-stop destination for coordinated care from diagnosis to treatment.

Beginning in June, the center also will be home to a program that focuses on disease prevention and promotes physical, psychological and social well-being through holistic health care.

Environmental features of the center include a roof that can detain up to six inches of storm water.

The building is also designed to be resilient in the case of extreme weather or disruption to city power.



Heating and air conditioning equipment, emergency generators and other key operational equipment is located on higher floors above potential flood levels.
