Healthcare: NuHealth issues $1 billion RFP

The NuHealth System is putting out requests for proposals for the $1 billion redevelopment of its East Meadow and Uniondale campuses.

Ohio-based Health Care REIT will act as NuHealth’s master developer and is entertaining project ideas from qualified builders to redevelop the two properties, which together total about 85 acres.

In a statement, NuHeath said Nassau County’s largest redevelopment project will create thousands of jobs, meet housing needs of seniors and medical residents, provide medical offices and improve health care of county residents.

The project includes remaking the 50-acre A. Holly Patterson nursing home in Uniondale into a senior village, as well as expanding and renovating the 35-acre Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow.

The plan for the Uniondale property includes a new 320-bed nursing home, a 150-bed assisted living facility, a community health center, a 29-station dialysis center, 388 units of senior housing, 100,000 square feet of retail/office space, a community center, athletic field, and about four acres of open space and walking trails.

NuHealth will continue to own and operate the new nursing home, community health center and dialysis center. The Town of Hempstead would need to rezone the property to allow the redevelopment.

In East Meadow, NuHealth wants to build medical office buildings for private physicians, an ambulatory surgery center, medical research, a wellness center, community and open space, and new housing for hospital residents and medical students.
