It’s been six months since members of the MSK Boards of Overseers and Managers, hospital leadership, and local elected officials joined together to celebrate the opening of the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Recently, the facility has been recognized by a number of industry leaders for its innovative and resilient design, some of the many features that put the 750,000 square foot facility in a class of its own.
