The planned $738 million renovation and expansion for Brooklyn, N.Y.-based NYC Health + Hospitals-Coney Island has received a go-ahead from the New York Public Health and Planning Council’s establishment and project review committee.

The next stage for is approval by the full council — which, if obtained, will allow the extensive renovations and expansion to be completed in 2023, according to published reports.

The hospital plans to build an 11-story, 350,000-sq. ft. tower and a critical services tower. It also will renovate its main hospital building, install a flood wall around the campus and demolish an older building damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

Most of the funds for the work will be from a $1.7 billion grant that NYC Health + Hospitals received in 2014 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after the storm caused significant flood damage.
