The Project

Mart Tower
Devoted to imaging, neurosciences, cancer care and cancer research, the eight-level 240,000-square-foot Medicine and Research Translation (MART) Building and 225,000-square-foot new Bed Tower will enable scientists and physicians to work side by side to advance cancer research and imaging diagnostics.

The MART will include cancer biology oriented wet laboratories for cell, tissue, and other cancer biology research, dry labs for statistical research, biomedical informatics, and clinical study, a chemistry research lab, conference center and educational space.  As the site of the new outpatient Cancer Center, the MART will allow Stony Brook to deliver cutting-edge cancer care more efficiently and effectively, while doubling its capacity to provide cancer treatment to the people of Long Island.

The outpatient Cancer Center will include multi-disciplinary exam space for medical and surgical oncology, infusion center with private and open bays, pediatric hematology and oncology including pediatric infusion, as well as patient amenities and support. There will be an investment in new faculty, fellowships, merit-based scholarships and need-based aid. The building will also contain a 300-seat auditorium for conferences, lectures and other events.

The new Bed Tower, consisting of 10 levels and 150 beds, will house Stony Brook Children's Hospital. It will include a newly built pediatric intensive care unit; an adolescent unit; a procedure suite; a hematology/oncology unit; medical/surgical units and modern patient and family amenities; new adult critical care and cardiac care units; an expanded imaging department, and increased support space throughout.

The plan also includes a new loading dock, cafeteria expansion, site improvements and new access roadways. Based on ongoing input from Hospital staff, the proposed design reflects Stony Brook's commitment to patient- and family-centered care. The buildings will help facilitate partnerships among healthcare practitioners, patients and families that lead to improved patient outcomes and enhance the quality and safety of healthcare.  

The MART and new Bed Tower is creating thousands of construction jobs, as well as several hundred new specialized research jobs. Completion is scheduled for Spring 2019.
