Joe Simone, President of Simone Development Companies, joined with Montefiore Medical Center, local elected officials and community leaders for a topping out ceremony marking the completion of the superstructure at Tower Two of Simone’s Hutchinson Metro Center in the Bronx.

“Today is a great day for the future of healthcare. This topping out ceremony is major milestone on the path toward opening a truly revolutionary, first-of-its kind medical facility,” said Mr. Simone. “We are honored to partner on this project with a visionary organization like Montefiore, which will deliver world-class treatments through multidisciplinary teams right here in the Bronx.”

The new tower is an 11-story, 280,000-square-foot building that Montefiore will lease in its entirety. It reflects an evolution in the delivery of healthcare, providing new space for multidisciplinary approaches to care and integrating technology that allows Montefiore to provide necessary treatments without the need for hospitalization.

Simone Healthcare Development is using its healthcare expertise and specialized design skills to construct a building that meets Montefiore’s patient-focused specifications and unique structural requirements of the imaging and surgical floors.

“This state-of-the-art building will include an ambulatory surgery center, featuring 12 operating rooms and four procedure rooms; an advanced imaging center; onsite laboratory services and pharmacy; as well as new primary and specialty care practices,” said Joe Simone.
