Level One Trauma Center
Winthrop-University Hospital was looking to add a Level One Trauma Center to the emergency department that would be able to treat both children and adult trauma patients. The addition needed to be located adjacent to the existing emergency department, but not impact the operations of the emergency department for an extended period of time.
The hospital chose modular construction to keep a majority of the construction activity away from the hospital and minimize the potential impact on infection control. By utilizing modular construction, a majority of the building was constructed off-site. The result was a 3,400 SF Level One Trauma Center addition which is now the only trauma center in Nassau County, Long Island that will be able to treat both children and adult trauma patients. The 3,400 SF modular building was built in eleven modular sections, keeping the size of each unit manageable to allow passage over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge as well as the ability to navigate through busy city streets to the site. The addition blends seamlessly into the hospital and with a minimally disruptive approach, allowed the hospital to maintain operations within the adjacent existing emergency department and reduce the total construction time significantly.

No. Modular buildings, even temporary ones, can be expected to last for decades. Permanent modular buildings may last for generations.
You can choose to purchase or lease modular buildings. At VESTA, we offer two leasing options:
- Operational lease: With an operational lease, you can essentially rent the building for us as long as you need. When your lease ends, the building will return to our inventory. Operational leases can last for years at a time, although they are typically more affordable if they only last for five years or less.
- Financed lease: Financed leases allow you to lease a building with the intention of owning. At VESTA, we work with financing partners who are specifically trained to finance leases for modular buildings.
Yes! Modular buildings are easy to customize. Whether you want a specific layout, materials, interior design, exterior design, specialty rooms, furniture, or amenities, we can customize your modular building to fit your needs.
The best way to understand is to remember that all modular construction is prefabricated, but not all prefabricated construction is modular.
Modular construction typically focuses on the assembly of fully closed or nearly closed modules. “3D volumetric” is also a term used for traditional modular construction. Prefab construction refers to anything pre-built for a building project, including pre-built walls, floors, or ceilings.
