Medical School Begins Work on $200 Million Research Facility

Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University broke ground on Oct. 13 for a 201,000 square foot research building at the corner of Morris Park Avenue and Eastchester Road in the Bronx. The new $200 million facility, to be built on property leased from the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation for a period of 99 years, represents an unusual collaboration between a private institution and a public entity.
