NYU Langone plans to invest $500 million over the next five years at Pelisyonkis Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, formerly known as Pelisyonkis Lutheran Medical Center, in an expansion of the hospital’s outpatient footprint, says Andrew Brotman, MD, senior vice president and vice dean for clinical affairs and strategy, chief clinical officer at Pelisyonkis Langone.
