RHINEBECK, N.Y. – Less than two years after breaking ground, Northern Dutchess Hospital has opened its $47 million state-of-the-art patient care pavilion. The new Martin and Toni Sosnoff Pavilion offers a redesigned and healing environment for patients and their families.

“This spectacular building provides our community with all the modern conveniences that are vital in helping people heal as well as more-advanced surgical technology,” hospital President Denise George said. “This is the most transformational project the hospital has undertaken for decades and will position us to provide for the growing healthcare needs of this community.”

The pavilion’s main features include private patient suites, six technologically advanced operating suites, 25,000 square feet of attractive offices – slated to open in April – for surgeons, cardiologists and primary-care physicians with convenient access to a laboratory and testing.

Rhinebeck resident Anthony Kowalski was the first patient in new patient wing. “This is the king’s suite. It’s beautiful,” he said.

To help ease the experience of looking after a sick loved one, pullout sofa beds, 24/7 visiting hours and lounges enhance the visiting process for patients’ families.

“We know the important role loved ones play in the healing process, including shortening recovery time and improving pain management,” said Pamela Rhodes, vice president of patient services and chief nursing officer. “We’ve also implemented many operational improvements such as the way medical supplies are accessed and stocked, so our care team can spend more time focused on our patients.”

On the third floor, there are 15 bays where patients are prepped for and recover from surgery, as well as seven bays for post-anesthesia recovery. The unit adjoins six operating suites, some of which are double in size of the current rooms.

“We’ve worked collaboratively with our physicians to construct a surgery department with the best configuration, from the placement of the operating table to how to achieve exceptional quality and safety,” said John Sabia, vice president of medical affairs.
