Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Jewish Home Lifecare, Manhattan -- Replacement Nursing Facility Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on September 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. at 120 West 106th Street, New York, NY 10025. The action involves the NYS DOH's approval of a construction application filed pursuant to Section 2802 of the Public Health Law (PHL) that would consist of Jewish Home Lifecare (JHL) in Manhattan's Upper West Side neighborhood. The Proposed Project would result in the construction of a new 414 bed skilled nursing facility in a single newly constructed building on the Project Site with private and semi private rooms, replacing the 514 existing, mostly semi private beds currently located in several older buildings in JHL, Manhattan's existing nursing facility. This would represent a reduction in the NYS DOH certified bed complement of 100 beds. The Proposed Project would redevelop an existing, approximately 31,804 square foot, 88 space surface accessory parking lot located on the project site with a new, 20 story (plus cellar floor), approximately 376,000 gross square foot building. The project is located at 125 West 97th Street, in the Borough of Manhattan, New York.
