Helmsley Medical Tower
1300 York Avenue (at East 70th Street)
New York, NY 10065
If your healthcare provider feels that you have sufficiently recovered to leave the hospital, but you live too far away to safely commute for visits, then you may be a candidate for our Helmsley Medical Towers program. There are a limited number of hotel suites available at Helmsley for patients requiring frequent visits at NewYork-Presbyterian Day Hospital and/or Clinic. You must have a designated 24-hour, 7-day a week caregiver to stay with you during the duration of your stay. Each room has either a bed with a pullout sofa bed or two beds with full amenities including fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, and kitchen supplies. There is daily maid service and cable television. There is free WiFi in the room and computer/printer available in the lobby. The room is provided for free. The only expense you would incur is for phone calls and parking (there is a $5 discount for parking). You and your caregiver can stay at Helmsley as long as your healthcare provider feels it is necessary. In the event you are readmitted to the hospital, the caregiver has 24 hours to check out of the room, otherwise they will be charged for the room.
