This project is a $21.1 million two-story addition above the 137-bed, state-of-the-art, Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Care Center, a skilled nursing care facility financed by the HIT in 2010. It features 32 new long-term ventilator beds, tripling the number of ventilation beds previously available. The Center is located on a 6.5-acre site within the South Westchester Executive Park in Yonkers.
The HIT is providing an $18.3 million investment for this second phase of the Center by purchasing Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate. The loan will be insured under Section 241 of the National Housing Act. The New York Foundling Hospital Center for Pediatric, Medical and Rehabilitative Care, Inc. is the project sponsor.
By providing financing for the addition to state-of-the-art Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, the HIT is helping this institution carry on its vital healthcare mission of serving special-needs children in New York. The nonprofit Seton Center was established by the Sisters of Charity of New York in 1987 and today provides skilled nursing care to medically fragile children with complex medical diagnoses and disabilities from birth to age 21. The Seton Center primarily serves lower-income patients covered by Medicaid reimbursement and is one of only five stand-alone, pediatric skilled-care nursing facilities in the state of New York.
Construction of this addition to the nursing care facility for medically fragile children is expected to create approximately 105 new union construction jobs.
The expanded unit will be covered under the existing Collective Bargaining Agreement with 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, AFL-CIO.
