New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai Hospital will soon open an ambulatory surgical center on the second floor of a brand-new retail and office building in Bayside.

Construction on the second floor of the building, which is located at 45-64 Francis Lewis Blvd., is already complete. Furniture and medical equipment has been brought into the future center, which will boast four full-size operating rooms throughout 21,000 square feet.

The facility could start seeing patients within the next couple of months, according to a representative from FDC Realty, which is marketing the building.

The medical center will offer various types of operations, such as cataract surgery on both children and adults. And there is an underground parking lot for about 96 cars and above-ground spots for more vehicles to accommodate an expected high volume of patients and staff.

The 19,000-square-foot first floor space isn’t completed yet, but FDC Realty is negotiating with another medical provider for some space and said numerous retail stores have expressed interest in the building, including a national brand cafe and a pharmacy.

For leasing opportunities at the building, contact David Gelfond or Bruce Pollack at FDC Realty at 631-234-3200.
