Multiple Locations
BMS Family Health Center Project

Brownsville Multi-Service Family Health Center, after experiencing rapid growth and an increased need for services, retained Mancini Duffy to renovate their existing flagship location in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

Renovations of approximately 7,500 square feet include new Article 28-compliant exam suites, including an OB/Gyn suite with new waiting area and 7 exam rooms, expansion of the existing Adult Medicine space to create 4 new exam rooms, a new pharmacy, and full renovation of the building lobby and entrance area. The overall scope of work also includes rerouting of ductwork and sprinklers, plumbing for new patient restrooms, construction of a new ADA-compliant exterior ramp and stair, and installation of a new code-compliant fire alarm system.

Construction occurred in carefully orchestrated phases so that the BMS Family Health Center Main facility could remain fully operational and open to patients 6 days a week throughout the renovations.

BMS Dental Renovation

Brooklyn-based Brownsville Multi-Service Family Health Center is embarking on a renovation project with the intent of expanding its dental practice. A new dental suite at the 259 Bristol Street location will increase overall capacity and provide new dental service at this location. The total square footage of renovation work is 1,445 square feet.

This project will include a full gut renovation of an existing dental suite, previously in use by New York City DOHMH. The dental suite will be renovated with new finishes, lighting, equipment and furnishings, dental operatories and associated support spaces. The new suite will include a reception and waiting area, staff restroom, patient restroom, six operatories, office, break room, sterilization space and clean and soiled utility. An existing public restroom is located outside the suite within the first floor of the building, and is available for use by visitors to BMS Dental.

BMS Multi-Service Family Health Center at Ashford

Brooklyn-based Brownsville Family Health Center had recently experienced rapid growth and increased need for services and retained Mancini to design a new ambulatory care community health center to serve the impoverished neighborhood of East New York.

Currently under renovation, the previously abandoned 10,500 square foot facility, on a limited construction budget, will be NYS Article 28 compliant and provide facilities for Adult Medicine, OB/Gyn, Pediatrics, Dental, and Nutrition services.

The main entry to the facility will be relocated from the basement level to the ground floor and will be defined by new floor-to-ceiling storefront windows which will flood the main waiting area in natural light.

A new exterior entryway with canopy and signage and new wheelchair access will create an inviting exterior façade. The interior will be a harmonious composition of shared waiting areas, clinical suites, administrative areas and support spaces.
