Educating the next generation of healthcare providers

SUNY's state-operated hospital facilities constitute 3.4 million gross square feet of space, supporting the daily activities of more than 1,600 licensed hospital and clinic beds. The Fund has a role in executing the capital projects for SUNY’s three teaching hospitals. The three State University of New York Hospitals are located in Syracuse (Upstate Medical University), Brooklyn (Downstate Medical Center), and Stony Brook (Stony Brook University Hospital). Each of the SUNY academic medical centers is comprised of multiple schools for medical and allied health professions.
