New York, NY – March 28, 2013 –  Attention men! Now it's your turn to have a center specially designed to meet your health care needs.

The first of its kind in the region, the Iris Cantor Men's Health Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center is a bright, open and high-tech environment where internists and urologists provide men with full-service health care, from heart rate to the prostate. The center offers men the same kind of comprehensive care the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center has provided to women since it opened a decade ago.

Established with a $20 million gift from prominent philanthropist Iris Cantor, the center reflects the trend in men's health of gradually shifting from medication and treatment in response to illness to one that encourages preventive measures and healthy lifestyles. It occupies 9,500 square feet on the 12th floor of 425 E. 61st St. in Manhattan, the same building as the women's health center, established in 2002 by Mrs. Cantor. The proximity of the two centers to each other enables couples to schedule their health care appointments at the same time.

"We've found that nearly half of patients being treated at the women's health center are men," says Mrs. Cantor. "This signaled to me that there is a real need for a dedicated men's health center to complement the care provided to women. I am delighted to see that dream fulfilled in the opening of the Iris Cantor Men's Health Center."

New York, NY – March 18, 2013 -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital with a 2013 ENERGY STAR Combined Heat and Power Award (CHP) for the hospital's highly efficient combined heat and power system at its Weill Cornell Medical Center campus.

The hospital's cogeneration plant, which opened in 2009, is a state-of-the-art system that provides combined heat and power (CHP), effectively creating a self-generating source of electricity and heat for the campus. By having its own CHP plant, the hospital is better protected from blackouts during weather-related events, ensuring that patient care can continue uninterrupted and that vital assets such as medical research facilities, diagnostic laboratories, and pharmaceutical supplies are safeguarded.

An additional benefit of the cogeneration plant is its efficiency. The plant uses 27 percent less fuel than traditional methods of power supply. This improved efficiency prevents some 21,500 pounds of carbon dioxide entering the air -- about the same as the amount released by more than 2,400 homes.
