Expansion in Midtown


Office building

Weill Cornell Medicine is expanding its clinical services in Midtown Manhattan with a new state-of-the-art patient care center at 575 Lexington Ave.

The new space, which represents a 216,000 square-foot expansion of clinical and research programs, will be renovated to support exceptional patient services in a well-situated midtown location with convenient access from Grand Central Terminal and three major subway lines.

The new ambulatory care center reflects Weill Cornell Medicine’s long-term commitment to providing increased access to quality medical care throughout New York City and is the most significant expansion of clinical care since the opening of the Weill Greenberg Center in 2007. The facilities at 575 Lexington represent the next phase of growth for Weill Cornell Medicine, including recent practices in Long Island City and Southampton. 

“Reaching and providing care to the greatest number of patients in New York City is our top priority.”

Dr. Robert Min, M.D. ’90

“The new space at 575 Lexington will be a convenient destination for patients living and working in Midtown Manhattan to receive exemplary care from Weill Cornell Medicine physicians and care providers,” said Dr. Robert Min (M.D. ’90), president and chief executive officer of Weill Cornell Medicine’s Physician Organization, a faculty practice that includes nearly 2,000 clinical providers. “Reaching and providing care to the greatest number of patients in New York City is our top priority.”

The facility will integrate dedicated space for clinical research to advance discoveries for patients. Proximity between patients and investigators will streamline the development of scientific protocols, recruitment of research participants and ultimately, delivery of advances to patients’ bedsides.
