Fleet Financial Group is developing a state-of-the-art healthcare facility called Eastern Mirage Medical Center at 42-31 Union Street in Flushing, Queens. The 104,000-square-foot medical center will be located within the tallest building in Flushing, an 18-story mixed-use structure that will also house the Eastern Mirage hotel.
The healthcare facility will incorporate advanced technology services in a more hospitality-inspired setting. By pairing it with the hotel, medical patients will have access to an indoor pool, spa, gym, meeting rooms, and a restaurant and bar. Technological features that further integrate the two components include 5G fiber optic wiring to connect the medical office to hotel suits. Facial and voice recognition security features for the center’s offices and elevators will create an almost completely touchless patient experience.
“Eastern Mirage Medical Center incorporates the most advanced technology available to hospitals today, along with a more welcome, hospitality-inspired setting,” said Richard Xia, president of Fleet Financial Group. “By creating a symbiotic relationship with the building’s healthcare facility and luxury hotel, we hope to create a steady flow of visitors to both businesses.”
Eastern Mirage Medical Center is designed with a five-layer curtain wall for sound insulation and natural light, high ceilings, and Turkish marble floors. The building will have over 34,000 square feet of outdoor space, including an all-glass roof terrace, as well as parking for 300 vehicles.
Also within the area are the Flushing Hospital Medical Center and New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital.
Eastern Mirage Medical Center is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2021.
