Full renderings have been revealed of the planned three-story, 25,000-square-foot Medical Arts Pavilion at 455 East Bay Drive in Long Beach. That’s in southern Nassau County on Long Island. It will serve as the replacement to the former Long Beach Medical Center complex. In 2012, the 142-bed facility suffered from significant flood damage and was soon abandoned. After years of discussing how to rebuild the facility, LI Herald now reports South Nassau Communities Hospital is moving forward to build an emergency department that will not operate like its full-service hospital predecessor. The pavilion will, however, operate 24 hours a day and will feature standard emergency department capabilities and equipment. The existing complex’s main and west buildings will be gut-renovated and could potentially get a third-floor expansion. The structure will also have to be elevated to 23 feet above sea level to meet Federal Emergency Management Agency height requirements.
