The IMSMP, together with our research affiliate, the Tisch MS Research Center of New York originally encompassed 34,000 square feet of space in midtown Manhattan. The space was constructed in 2006, with a vision unlike the traditional physician’s office. Renowned architects developed a beautiful design aesthetic and applied it to the functional requirements of a medical center. The large space is necessary to provide adequate facilities for our many divisions and yet was designed in such a way as to foster communication and interaction between those divisions. At the same time, the design of the center conveys a sense of openness and tranquility to our patients.
In January of 2010, the IMSMP announced its' lease for an additional 48,000 square feet making it the largest establishment in the world committed to discovering the cause and cure for MS. We are currently in the midst of our 3rd-floor expansion. The expanded center already incorporates a 3-Tesla MRI Suite, with plans to build our Institute for Experimental and Stem Cell Research. With over 80,000 square feet, we are currently the largest MS center in the world.
Interactions with the MS specialists occur in one of four neurologist’s offices and twelve patient examination rooms. Visiting physicians have a consultation room and examination areas. The 750 square foot rehabilitation division includes the Physical Therapy Suite, Manual Therapy Suite, and Gait Paths. The social work suite consists of our three social workers’ offices, a private psychotherapy room, and a patient education room.
