New York Area Godsell Construction Corporation Beats
Building Slump by Specializing in Hospital Renovation

HICKSVILLE, N.Y. – With demand for construction soft, Godsell Construction Corporation is finding that it pays to specialize. Based in Long Island, the company has kept busy doing hospital renovations.

“New hospital construction has slowed, but renovations are still going strong,” says the company’s president Arthur Godsell. “And competition is limited because the learning curve is so steep.”

“Hospital renovation requires a whole different style of work,” Mr. Godsell explains. “There’s more specialty equipment to order, and more power and mechanicals to install. Plus, hospitals don’t have off hours. You have to work around the staff and cleanliness is major factor.” He notes that it takes years to learn the specialized requirements and train workers to have the necessary expertise.

Godsell Construction Corporation is currently renovating a 320 slice CT scanner unit in Manhasset, as well as CT scan units in six hospitals across Long Island. It is also renovating the Stem Cell Research Department at Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Over the past 20 years, Godsell has performed major renovations for the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health system in Manhasset and in New Hyde Park. It has renovated the Blackhall Unit and ENT Department of Lenox Hill Hospital, as well as multiple floors of Southampton Hospital.
