NEW YORK CITY-NYU Langone Medical Center has received two gifts totaling $260 million to support major expansion of the hospital and medical school Midtown campus along the East River. Benefactor Helen Kimmel, widow of the late Martin Kimmel, is donating $150 million toward construction of a new patient pavilion at the Medical Center that will increase the NYU clinical space by as much as 50%. It will be named in honor of Helen Kimmel and her late husband, the co-founder of Kimco Realty.
